My mini conference idea

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi all,

Honestly I am a little unsure of what would be a good idea for my mini conference topic.  I am a little worried about burdening people with asking them to present.  However I was contemplating facilitating a mini conference around 'getting students to engage online', with specific reference to engaging on elluminate.  I have discussed this with another lecturer who may be able to present.  What do you think? How mini is mini? I would like to present on Friday 12th November. 

I would welcome your feedback.

Hi Jade, I think your topic sounds great. I would be intersted in attending. I have not used Elluminate as an Educator but have used the online environment to engage midwifery students - most where very keen to use it, even those with limited experience in the online world. I just had to make the reason to access the online environment interesting enough for them to engage. Just wondering if your 10am time slot is in NZ time as that makes it 8am in Brisbane (I think?)

Thanks for that. I didn't even think of the time difference. I have changed it to 11am NZ time, but I could propably stretch it out further to 11.30am. Thanks again. Jade

Hi Jade, I am afraid your 11am time slot clashes with Kim et al. As they set their time first, can you change yours again. Sorry about that  :)

Hi Jade, this sounds like a good topic to me and I would also like to attend. I have used Elluminate quite a lot for meetings at work, and a little in teaching. But I would find it useful to hear about/ discuss ways that it can be used more effectively in a learning environment. Karen
