If you want to learn more about post-secondary teaching and learning in Second Life, this is a great place to start.
A take on that 1960’s movie, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!”, at times the work we do in virtual worlds can feel like we’re all running in various directions hunting for treasure. Virtual worlds like Second Life have been a part of our work now for a few years and we are doing wonderful things on various levels. Some efforts are highly organized and funded while others are somewhat more loosely collected, organic and serendipitous. All of our efforts are creating fantastic accounts of lessons learned and insights for better understanding and refining the approach and effort for greater impact.
Join us for two days as we discuss virtual worlds and librarianship. Note that this online conference will not be taking place in Second Life. We’ll be using Adobe Connect for the sessions. We’ll be convening online on October 1 and 2 to discuss topics such as, “Virtual Worlds Development”, “Scaling Graduate LIS Instruction in Virtual Environments”, “Academic Libraries and Virtual Worlds”, “Building a Library Presence in the Virtual World of Second Life” and “Creating Educational Tools in Second Life for Libraries”. A panel of the conference speakers is also scheduled in which your questions will feature prominently.
