Great news yesterday from the 27th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on August 3-5 2011 as they issued a workshop invitation to Kevin Burden and myself to present the DiAL-e Framework.
We are really delighted to have this news and keen to explore with a US audience some of the resources outside the original JISC digitization projects which initiated our framework approach. This project started in 2006 as a very small ‘assisted take-up’ activity for JISC but has maintained a consistent level of interest, development and support.
We are also keen to develop with our US colleagues, at this specific gathering with the focus on distance education, the ‘spaces’ dimension of the framework and look at how access to digital artefacts via laptops, tablets and handheld devices affects the pedagogical affordances presumed of them. We’ll be tweeting at #dialeUS as we plan and prepare for the conference. We hope some of you will join us.
