Faculty Learning Communities

Last Friday our Faculty Learning Community on Social Media met at the Mandolin Cafe. This was our second get together. Even though we have only had two meetings there have been a lot of great ideas generated and some wonderful conversation. There has been a lot of sharing of experiences, ideas and fears around using technology in instruction. I have to admit that I expected to see some attrition (which happens all too often in meetings) from the first to the second meeting, but the fact is we grew by one!

So far we have discussed Second Life, digital literacy, instant messaging and keeping up with technology in the world of perpetual beta. One instructor shared her blog and wiki on teaching with Second Life in ESL classes.
