Hello AIR fans!
Are any of you located in Africa-- or interested in e-learning and
e-research in Africa? If so, you may want to log into the e/merge
2012 online conference (9-20 July) about the use of educational
technology in African universities. e/merge 2012 includes five
keynotes, 35 papers and presentations, six online workshops and
opportunities for rich participant initiated conversations in the Open
Space forums. See: http://emerge2012.net.
Registration is free for all participants based in Africa and costs
R750 (approximately $90) for participants in other continents. (Please
contact me off-list if you are interested but lack funds to attend.)
I will be presenting a workshop (17-20 July): Use What You Have!
Designing and Conducting Research Interviews Online. This interactive,
multi-session workshop will introduce key steps for designing and
conducting ethical research interviews online. The workshop is
relevant whether you teach research or are yourself a researcher.
Graduate students whether at thesis or dissertation stages– can
benefit from the practical tips for using online technologies to
collect data with interviews. You can attend one or all of the
sessions! Each new topic will be launched with a live webinar, with
ongoing asynchronous discussion. See the outline:
