I hope you don't mind me adding a new topic on this but I was just wondering if the following might be of interest to any fellow LSG members:
Alongside my esteemed colleagues and co-authors, Steph Broadribb (https://learningandskillsgroup.ning.com/profile/StephBroadribb?xg_s...) Anna Peachey, we have been using Second Life to support both student and staff development activity at The Open University (http://www.open.ac.uk) for a few years now.
At 4pm GMT we’re delighted to be part of the ‘Higher Education Seminars in Second Life’ series, where we will be holding a session relating to our recent book chapter published in Higher Education in Virtual Worlds: Teaching and Learning in Second Life (http://books.emeraldinsight.com/display.asp?isb=9781849506090&C...).
So, if you are interested in hearing about how we have used Second Life for both distance learning and on-site blended course delivery or are just interested in joining our tour of the Open University SL islands, then please do come along and say hello! Hopefully the session will be useful for both academics and practitioners alike.
If you would like to attend this free session, please follow the slurl below just prior to 4pm:
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email and I’ll do my best to get back to you ASAP.
Hopefully see some of you tomorrow!
