Heading up the northern California and Oregon coasts to Portland to talk about World University and School at Reed College and at Multnomah Monthly Meeting (Quakers) this weekend. Nice to be on the road.
I'll be giving a Reed College Paideia class (http://www.reed.edu/paideia/) on Saturday, January 17th and Sunday the 18th, at 1 pm as well as an outreach presentation to the Quaker Multnomah Monthly Meeting in Portland, OR, on January 16th at 5 pm. Stop by if you're interested - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's the Reed College Paideia course description:
- Best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare wiki World University and School: How Reedies can wiki-teach here and eventually develop WUaS as interns
A Paideia course on how Reedies can teach and develop Creative Commons’ licensed WUaS, which is like Wikipedia with MIT OpenCourseWare, in wiki-subjects that they love. This course will share in a hands-on manner 1) how to curate, edit, add to and develop a WUaS wiki subject page to develop further expertise in that area, 2) how to start a new WUaS wiki subject page as a creative opportunity, 3) how to begin teaching in a Google + group video Hangout and 4) possibly in 3D interactive virtual worlds, if there’s interest and time.
Here's the Multnomah Monthly Meeting description:
- Friendly Best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare wiki (editable web pages) World University and School presentation to MMM Friends, especially teens interested in free online college
In this presentation and as a kind of Friendly leading, I'll share with Multnomah Friends particularly about the free planned undergraduate MIT OCW-centric degrees at startup Quaker-informed wiki online World University and School - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ (see the FGC video here for further information) - as well as other free Friendly creative wiki teaching and learning opportunities. Sharing and Q&A time in the second half of the hour.
