We are Virtually Connecting from #DigPed PEI July 2016

One more Digital Pedagogy Lab Institute is coming up! We are excited to be Virtually Connecting at Digital Pedagogy Lab PEI (Prince Edward Island, Canada) – the event is organized by Bonnie Stewart of the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), social media researcher and Virtually Connecting advisory buddy (event announcement on UPEI website here). The event takes place July 13-15 on the Atlantic timezone (ADT), and will consist of two tracks:

  • Networks (led by Dave Cormier of UPEI, famous for his rhizomatic learning MOOCs and Jesse Stommel, co-director of Digital Pedagogy Lab and Executive Director of the University of Mary-Washington Division of Teaching and Learning Technology).
  • Digital literacies (led by Bonnie Stewart of UPEI, famous for her research on scholarly influence on social media and Sean Michael Morris, co-director of Digital Pedagogy Lab and instructional designer at Middlebury College).

In addition to the tracks taking place over three days, the event includes the following:

If you can’t make it to Canada, you’re in luck because we have a team of onsite buddies (Autumm Caines, Sundi Richard, Susan Adams) and virtual buddies (Maha Bali, Alan Levine, Helen De Waard, Lisa Hammershaimb) who will be connecting you to the conference and almost all of the awesome people we have mentioned above during the institute!
