I have been invited to give the keynote talk at the MDLA fall conference. I plan to spend time following their theme -- Social Mania -- by focusing energy on the social web and its impact on teaching and learning. I am going to spend time talking about social environments, user created content, and the emergence of the One Button Web. I am looking forward to making new connections and meeting some new friends.
The Faculty Academy for Teaching and Learning Technologies is a free annual event hosted by the University of Mary Washington. This year's conference will be held May 13-14, 2009, at the University of Mary Washington's College of Graduate and Professional Studies. For the past 14 years, Faculty Academy has brought together faculty and staff from both campuses at UMW to share and celebrate the year's efforts and accomplishments in the classroom, with teaching and learning technologies as the specific focus (or, one might say, catalyst) of the event.
