The 2009 NMC Symposium on New Media and Learning, the thirteenth in the NMC’s Series of Virtual Symposia, will explore the impact of new media on teaching, learning, research, and creative expression, especially in higher education.
NMC Symposium on New Media & Learning
The NMC have just advised that my presentation proposal has been accepted.
Drawing together the established wisdom of educational drama, applied theatre and “situated role”, this session will examine the benefits of creating socially driven learning activities inside 3D MUVEs. Role-played learning activities in 3D MUVEs can be framed as an “active-inquiry process”. This session will propose and test some effective forms and conventions to frame inworld roleplay as purposeful collaborative learning.
Thursday, March 26, 4:30pm – 5:15pm
(please note: this is US Pacific Time – Western Australian time is 8.30-9.15 am – if my daylight savings dates are correct)
I’ve been involved with several of the NMC Symposia and they are always a tremendous gathering of the New Media community. This event is convened in Second Life and registration is available via: http://www.nmc.org/node/2009-nml-symposium/register-online
