Online seminar on Networked Learning and International Development

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Charalambos Vrasidas is currently hosting an online seminar on Networked Learning and International Development in the Networked Learning Conference forums – so come and join the discussions in the forum and sign up for the Networked Learning Community.

Charalambos was one of the keynotes at the Networked Learning Conference 2008 in Greece, and he made an excellent presentation on “Social Networking for Social Justice: Challenges and Possibilities”, which I blogged about at that time (or see Gráinne Conole post about the keynote).

I am sure the online seminar will be equally interesting, so do come and join the fun :-)
