Wednesday’s Alumni Seminar Event in Second Life was a wonderful success, with two brilliant talks from Michael Gallagher and Nicola Osborne, attended by a delightful mix of students, alumni, programme team and friends. Some photographs of the event are here – thanks to Clara and Austin for taking and sharing these.
Michael’s talk and slides are available at http://www.slideshare.net/gallagher.michaelsean/multimodal-composition-via-mobile-technology. The title of his talk was Mobile Material Texts: Composition in the Humanities and Legitimate Peripheral Participation.
Nicola’s slides from her talk, “The course of online events never did run smooth”: lessons learned running the Will’s World Online Hack, are available at http://www.slideshare.net/edinadocumentationofficer/the-course-of-online-events-never-did-run-smooth.
Many thanks to all who attended, to Marshall Dozier and Fiona Littleton for their work in setting up the space and making it so welcoming, and most of all to the “awesomesauce” Michael and Nicola.
