All times listed are CST which is the local conference time.
We are Virtually Connecting at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative 2016 also known as #ELI2016. Can’t make it to the conference? Or maybe you are attending the virtual sessions? The best part of conferences are the conversations that you have with people that you meet there!! Don’t give that up just because you can’t make it to San Antonio!! Join us! It is free!!
Tuesday, February 2nd 5pm CST – Virtual buddy (and author of this post) Autumm Caines @autumm and Rebecca Hogue @rjhogue will meet up with Onsite buddies Joe Murphy @joefromkenyon and Sundi Richard @sundilu to talk with Bryan Alexander @BryanAlexendar, Michael Berman @amichaelberman, Gardner Campbell @GardnerCampbell, and Matt Crosslin @grandeped!!!
Wednesday, Feb 3rd at 5:15pm CST – Virtual buddies Patrice Torcivia Prusko @Profpatrice and Chris Gilliard @hypervisible will meet up with Sundi and Joe to talk with Kristen Eshleman @kreshleman, Kyle Johnson @kyleejohnson and perhaps some of the ELI organizers.
I find Virtually Connecting sessions really tap into the spontaneous element of being at a conference. You know how you bump into new people or start that conversation in the hallway with someone you’ve never met before? For this reason, all times are approximate and we may have more onsite guests or virtual buddies drop in… but this is what we have confirmed at the time of this blog post.
To join, drop a tweet to @VConnecting, @autumm, or @Profpatrice with specifics about the day that you would like to join. We will request that you securely get us an email address so that we can communicate with you about the join information.
