Radio EDUtalk and #LWF12

Update: added audio from Radio EDUtalk session

Doug at Mobility Shifts, NYC, October 2011

I’m very much looking forward to a couple of speaking engagements coming up over the next couple of weeks. Happily, they’re both free.

Radio EDUtalk

Tonight (Wednesday 18th January 2012, 8pm) I’m spending some time with Scottish educators David Noble and John Johnston and their new Radio EDUtalk project. I’ve known John and David for a number of years as they were regular contributors to the EdTechRoundUp.

I’m going to be discussing my Ed.D. thesis on digital and new literacies with a Q&A session and opportunity for discussion afterwards. It would be great if you could join us.

Learning Without Frontiers festival (#LWF12)

Next Wednesday I’m running a workshop entitled Education for the Apocalypse with Keri Facer (who’s also doing one of the keynotes). Because of the interactive nature of the workshop I doubt it will be recorded, but the good news is that it’s FREE as part of the festival running alongside the LWF conference.

Our workshop runs from 5pm to 6.30pm on the Wednesday if you can make it to London Olympia in time. Here’s the session overview:

This session will take delegates through a fast paced collaborative process that will encourage them to explore radically different approaches to education in the light of economic, environmental, technological and political changes. It will explore emerging trends and significant potential disruptions, and encourage participants to confront their own fears and aspirations, and find practical steps towards creative educational change.

The LWF12 programme is available here and the hashtag for our session is #E4A.
