The loneliness of the long-distance learner (MADLaT 2014 workshop slides)

Slides that I used to support my workshop at MADLaT, Winnipeg, today on why, whether, when and how to employ social techniques in learning. Because it was about sharing ideas, fears, concerns and suggestions from the workshop attendees themselves you really have to have been there to follow much of this so it Includes my notes that may or may not make any sense as they were meant mainly for my use, but might help to clarify things in places. Includes discussion of a few of the things that will appear in the book Terry Anderson and I have due out next month (link provided!) and some theoretical stuff somewhere around the middle.

    Really excellent presentation slides. Would not mind having the presentation video'd.

    Next step: The loneliness of the long-distance academic. Equally necessary, even more 'left out of the loop', IMO. ;-)

    Thanks Richard! Alas, no video - it was a three-hour workshop and would have needed the skill of Werner Herzog to make that stay interesting :-)
