This is a four week online workshop. The structure and content are strongly inspired by University of Mary Washington’s Domain of One’s Own Project and their faculty training initiative and the Community of Inquiry model.
This course focuses on building or shaping one’s digital identity and how your own digital identity informs how you use technology within your teaching and scholarship. Participants will be both posting in a blog and using Twitter throughout the course. Our designated Twitter hashtag is #DigPINS.
Every week I will post a video introducing the week’s theme and activities. There will be a few articles to read and some online activities to participate in.
There will be weekly channels in SLACK where weekly topics and readings can be discussed.
Throughout the course participants will be encouraged to join in to an ongoing asynchronous conversation using the hashtag #DigPINS on Twitter. There will also be a synchronous session in weeks two, three, and four.
At any time in the course, if we have tried out an approach that you do not think worked, and that could be changed to work more beneficially for the group as we continue the course, please bring it to our attention in the general channel in SLACK.
The time commitment for this course is at least 2 hours a week, but could be more depending on how much you want to participate.
