ETUG Interest Groups and Chat Sessions
Many ETUG members were inspired by the energy and enthusiasm generated by our gathering at the ETUG Spring Workshop a few weeks ago at SFU Burnaby.
As a followup, several ETUGgers have decided to organize some virtual meetups with ETUG and other interested people to continue the discussions we started. Following loosely on the Mozilla model of meetings for Open Badges, a few groups will get together for some casual chat sessions using a variety of tools such as Google Plus Hangout, BB Collaborate or Big Blue Button. Its all very experimental, spontaneous and just the thing ETUGgers are up for!
For those keen on the idea of growing a BC Open Educator Community, this group will be facilitated by Will Engle, UBC (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Brian Lamb, TRU. For people interested in the area of Online Professional Development for Instructors, this group will be facilitated by Emily Schudel, University of Victoria (email@example.com). Please contact them directly for further details. Information on future meetings will be posted on etug.ca/ (and perhaps a wiki site) and tweeted to @etug.
If you have an interest group or idea that inspired you at ETUG (here was so much great stuff going on!) and want to connect to others about it, let us know and we’ll see what we can do to help. You can Contactus@etug.ca/.
