         Subject: Reminder of Resources: Pedagogical Participations

Dear Willard et al.

The call for papers / presentations reproduced
below is certainly a model in the genre. [Note the
apologies are for the reception of multiple copies
not for cross-posting (nuance, eh)]

The TCC conferences has always been very inviting
for both newbie novice and seasoned experts alike. I last
actively participated in 2003 with a piece "Of
Drugs, Messages and Time" and have managed a bare peek at
the offerings since thanks to the excellent
archiving. (See more on access to the archives below).

I know this sounds like an informational
endorsement (it is). It is also a call for institutes of higher
learning to pay attention to what has been
happening in the community colleges. Humanists in particular can
benefit from observing a rich exchange on the
lore and learning of networked environments engaged in the
work of pedagogy and access.

> April 17-19, 2007
> Pre-conference dates: April 3-4, 2007
> Submission deadline: January 26, 2007
> Homepage: http://tcc.kcc.hawaii.edu
> CALL FOR PROPOSALS. TCC 2007 invites faculty, support staff,
> librarians, counselors, students, administrators, and consultants to
> submit proposals for papers, discussions and other presentations that
> address this year's conference theme.

> INTRODUCTION. E-Learning is pass=E9. U-learning is the new wave
> globally in higher education. Ubiquitous learning encompasses e-
> learning and emphasizes learning anytime, anywhere and anyway in both
> formal and informal lifelong learning environments. As u-learning and
> Web 2.0 technology evolve, social interaction, intercultural
> communications, and global collaboration increases in importance.
> Social networking and learning communities are integral components of
> u-learning.
> Through online social networks, young adults today gain a sense of
> community that is important in their daily and social life. How can
> we learn from this? How can we learn from our students?
> What is the status of social networking (Facebook, Mixi, etc.) and
> online learning communities today? Have they succeeded or have they
> withered away? How can we complement our students' prior experiences
> with interacting socially online? How can we assess learning in this
> new environment? Will mobile phones become synonymous with u-learning
> as proponents advocate? How do we train faculty and staff and engage
> them to support productive learning communities? Will learning
> communities help bridge the Internet divide? How do we "feed and
> weed" effective learning communities or social networking systems in
> the U-learning era? Will virtual worlds such as Second Life become a
> new learning environment?
> THEME. TCC will offer papers and presentations on the evolution,
> trends, successes, or failures of learning communities and social
> networking systems in higher education. The coordinators, however,
> are interested in a broad range of topics that highlight the use of
> educational technology, including but not limited to the following:
> * Online, hybrid, blended or other modes of technology enhanced learning
> * Distance learning including mobile learning
> * E-learning and ubiquitous learning
> * Student success factors in online learning
> * E-portfolios and other online assessment tools
> * Technology implementation and services in learner centered
> environments
> * Emerging technologies for teaching and learning (blogs, wikis,
> podcasts, etc)
> * Creating and delivering multimedia including learning objects
> * Building and sustaining learning communities
> * Student orientation and preparation
> * Open content and open source
> * Accessibility for persons with disabilities
> * Global learning and international education
> * Professional development for faculty and staff
> * Gender equity, the Digital Divide, and open access
> * Online student services (tutoring, advising, payments, etc)
> * Technology use to enhance communication and collaboration
> * Institutional planning and change catalyzed by technology advances
> * Educational technology use in Asia & the Pacific, Europe, South
> America, and Africa.
