Event Details

CELT is delighted to welcome Alan Levine and Mia Zamora for a day of engaging workshops and seminars entitled, 'Open Learning, Infectious Creativity, & the Future of Connected Collaboration'. Events and times are detailed below, and we would ask that you sign up for each session you wish to attend. 


1. Connected Learning and community formation in open online networks

Main Seminar (11:00 – 12:30, ROOM G011) - Mia Zamora & Alan Levine

Mia and Alan will describe their co-teaching model, developed in the context of open and connected learning and used in #NetNarr and #ResNetSem for facilitating intercultural learning and collaboration between classes (students, lecturers, and others) in different parts of the world. Through their work both individually and together, Mia and Alan have found that particular infrastructuring practices can prove vital in supporting students in making critical connections that support learning and research. The seminar is designed for educators who are considering (or are presently) engaging in broader networks to support generative aspects of networked learning and/or networked research practice with their students.


2.   Electronic literature and the future of Digital Humanities

Seminar (1:30-3:00, ROOM G011) - Mia Zamora

Mia will map a connected learning approach to teaching electronic literature (elit) that emphasizes a networked, production-centred learning model while promoting a broader experience of global digital citizenship. The elit class (open, networked and connected) is transformed into a place of digital experimentation and composition. By building upon key digital literacies and designing a network built on connected creativity and collaborative imagination, we can open the field to new elit practitioners as digital humanists, while simultaneously empowering our students to imagine better collective/civic futures. This seminar will be useful for all engaged in or interested in digital humanities – past, present, and future.

Workshop (1:30-2:30, ROOM G010) - Alan Levine

Do you ever wonder about the rights and permissions associated with using and sharing digital content, for scholarly work or otherwise? This workshop is for you! Alan Levine makes copyright, Creative Commons and Wikimedia interesting, useful, and (yes!) fun -- for staff, for students, for all. (e.g. http://picturethis.extendlabs.ca

 

4. DS106: Outbreaks of infectious and open acts of creativity

Workshop (2:45-3:45, ROOM G010) - Alan Levine

Digital Storytelling can be described as using digital tools for storytelling and meaning making. The well-known DS106 (Digital Storytelling 106) was the inspiration for NUI Galway’s own Campus Create. This workshop with Alan Levine (a DS106 co-creator) digs into the DS106 archives to explore what we can learn from these and other examples of open/digital storytelling about creativity, learning and assessment – and how simple aspects of digital storytelling can illuminate learning far beyond the curriculum.
