Eight week course for educators (pilot). Called Learning In a Digital Culture, the course meets on our DeVry GSP Island, but also includes blogs, VOIP, and other components from the culture. Content is split between an experiential romp through SL, and a review and discussion of traditional adult learning theory and how new experience impacts those theories.
Jamison is teaching the pilot which now includes 20 educators, half faculty and half administrators, one fourth with prior SL experience and 3/4 full-blown noobs.
