Great to see details of the DiAL-e Workshop is PM-7 at the The 27th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison
Our session is: DiAL-e Framework: Optimizing media for engagement at a distance and is a half-day workshop on
Wednesday, August 3; 1:00-4:00
"Despite the abundance of digital media and communication tools now available to educators, it remains a challenge to use media effectively to promote learner engagement and higher order thinking skills. Join this lively, interactive and hands-on workshop to learn the Digital Artifacts for Learner Engagement (DiAL-e) framework for distance learning design and how to adapt it to your particular discipline and institutional setting. Through exemplars and problem-solving scenarios, you will explore how digital artifacts from a range of worldwide video archives can be used to develop higher levels of engagement, critical thinking and student independence. This workshop will also demonstrate how Web 2.0 tools support effective interactions around digital artifacts. Finally, you will develop your own ideas and exemplars for immediate application. Laptops will be helpful but are not required for participation."
We are very excited about running this worksop, which we'll endeavour to capture here at dial-e.net too.
