#digitaledu: What we’ve learned, what’s new and what’s on the horizon in social media education

Track this Panel

For the past couple of years, a group of UToronto SCS #digitaledu instructors and students have presented a panel at PodCamp TO on the state of digital education. In 2015, we want to try something different: a lively campfire discussion – where everyone can weigh in – on what’s happening in social media education, what’s working, where it’s falling down, how it’s evolving from a DIY model into something more formalized, whether or not academic institutions can keep up and if there’s a better way to approach it. If you’ve taught social media, conducted a workshop or training session, taken a class or workshop, please join @martinwaxman, @edenspodek, @donnapapacosta, @dibegin, @AlisonGJ and others for a no holds barred conversation.

Key Take Aways

  • Better understanding the ever changing state of digital education.
  • Whether academic institutions are able to keep up - why or why not?
  • If DIY is the best model for social media education or if should it be formalized.
  • What's working in digital and social media education.
  • What ideas there are out there for a better training model.

Q: I heard PodCamp Toronto is an “unconference.” What the heck is that?!

An uncon­fer­ence is a facil­i­tated, participant-driven event cen­tred on a theme or pur­pose (in this case, podcasting and various forms of digital media). Because we’re an unconference, we encourage our participants to exercise the “Law of Two Feet” (see next Q)
