End of term: Social Gathering in Edinburgh?

Por fin acab’o!!!

I think that all of us finish this term course on sunday (at least the IDEL11 students).
I don’t know how many of you are based in Scotland but I wonder if we could have an end-of-term social gathering in Edinburgh.
It would be nice if our tutors could also attend and we could talk each other face-to-face (Dreyfuss 2003 🙂

I was thinking of a nice caf’e or so around the main campus in George Square. For me, the best days are Thursday or Friday evening, after 6:00 p.m.

Let me know what you thin about the gathering.
I have created a Doodle so that we can decide the most convenient date for all of us:

Online ‘manifesto’ events starting Monday 18th April

hi everyone,

Just a quick reminder that we’ll be opening the wiki space for the SWO project manifesto – currently called “teaching online: a modest proposal” – on Monday, and are inviting all students on the MSc (past and present) to contribute your ideas, questions and comments to it.

The wiki space will be located within the Holyrood Park wiki at http://holyroodpark.pbworks.com.

If you’re free on Thursday evening (21 April), please also join us in Second Life for a discussion about the wiki activity – 8pm UK time.

All the details are on the events page.

Hope to see you online next week!
