We Are @Vconnecting from @DigPedLab UMW #DigPed

DigPed UMW VC guests and buddies

We are Virtually Connecting from one more Digital Pedagogy Lab Institute (the third this year!) which takes place August 8-12 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The event is jam-packed with people in the digital pedagogy field you will enjoy meeting, many of them appearing on Virtually Connecting for the first time! Also for the first time, Autumm Caines received a “Virtually Connecting” fellowship from the DigPedLab team.

This time around, we have several different types of sessions. There are the typical Virtually Connecting hallways conversations, and there are also a couple of hybrid workshops taking place during the event itself where we will be present. Organizers are also livestreaming keynotes at this link

Details of Virtually Connecting sessions below – tweet us or leave a comment if you’re interested in joining.

  1. wonderful twitter convo ~ nap is about to overtake me (sr narclepsy, better than being a sr narc), so I may not be awake for first live session. with so many, I’m bound to make at least one though.

    • I am sorry Suzanne I totally missed this comment. The hangout was full with a waiting list…so you wouldn’t have probably been able to join. But I apologize for not noticing your comment earlier.

  2. Hi Maha, I would LOVE to be part of conversations in future and also would be happy to work as volunteer if you ever need extra pairs of virtual hands. In the meantime, so glad that I can listen in and participate asynchronously. Some amazing discussions that will really support my work in the next year available here. Thanks loads. S.
