<nettime-ann> Fwd: Learning and Research in Second Life Brisbane workshop


Learning and Research in Second Life Brisbane

Call for Participation

1-5pm, Friday 24th July, QUT Gardens Point, QUT – Rm S405A

RSVP deadline July 15th 2009

Second Life(R) is a 3d virtual environment created by Linden Lab which has captured the attentions of researchers and teachers from around the world from a variety of disciplines.

This 1/2 day workshop aims to improve the understanding of Second Life as a Learning and Research environment. It will bring 20-30 researchers together to collaborate, discuss and workshop diverse topics related to research and learning in Second Life. We will pursue a schedule in which participants will discuss their work and interests on three different topics: learning in Second Life, research practices in virtual worlds, and ethical research methods. In the end we will try to come to terms with how can we better integrate our research learning practices in this sphere?

This workshop is targeted at people who have experience in virtual worlds and wish to work with others to improve their research and their learning experiences in world.

The workshop encourages researchers to share papers by submitting them before hand and to send a short biography to jeremy.hunsinger {AT} gmail.com. The papers and bios will be distributed amongst participants before the workshop. These papers and bios have the purpose of providing a common platform for understanding our research together during the workshop.

We welcome professionals, faculty and graduate students to participate.

This workshop is organized by Jeremy Hunsinger and Ross Brown
