Inquiry-Based Learning in Second Life: What Kentucky Faculty are Doing

Join faculty from UK and WKU in a seminar set in Second Life (SL).  During this seminar we will hear from faculty at each school who are teaching in SL and tour the two universities’ SL islands.  There will be time for discussion after the tours.

 

Two options to attend:

1.   

If you have a Second Life account (for more on SL accounts, visit secondlife.com) and would like to participate inworld, you may log in from your own computer.  We will want to know what size group we will have inworld, so please contact Randolph Hollingsworth (dolph@uky.edu) or in SL send a message to Bella Yan. We’ll begin on the UK island at the main entry point (the paddock, http://slurl.com/secondlife/University_of_Kentucky/179/147/30) and then move to the WKU island together. 

 

2.    If you prefer to observe the inworld activities and participate in the discussions as a “real person,” TASC is hosting a viewing in Whitehall Classroom Building room 319.  This option will allow those who are new to or interested in Second Life to observe without needing an account.  You will need to arrive 15 minutes early for a quick orientation so you understand what you are seeing once the seminar begins.

Date/Time: Friday, March 27 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm
