Edinburgh University team presents at the virtual iSchool
Our Centre for Information Literacy Research hosted a meeting in the virtual world, Second Life (SL), on 13th November. Clara O'Shea (Edinburgh University) led a presentation and discussion on the Manifesto for Teaching Online (http://onlineteachingmanifesto.wordpress.com/). The Manifesto is a series of brief statements that attempt to capture what is generative and productive about online teaching and course design. It was produced by Jen Ross, Clara O’Shea, Sian Bayne and Hamish Macleod; members of the programme team on the MSc in E-learning at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Jen and Hamish were also present in SL to join in the discussion with the international group of participants who assembled for the event.
