Hack Education Writer / Activist Audrey Watters to Speak about MiddCreate

On October 21 at 1:30pm ET, the Office of Digital Learning and the Digital Learning Commons will be hosting a talk by Audrey Watters, internationally recognized education writer and speaker. Audrey will give a talk called “Attending to the Digital / Reclaiming the Web“, which will focus on issues of digital identity and ownership, and on the Domain of One’s Own movement that inspired Middlebury’s own MiddCreate. On Middlebury Campus, we will gather to watch and discuss the livestream at 1:30pm ET in the Davis Family Library, room 105A. For more information, visit the Office of Digital Learning blog.

Openness without penalty: The cornerstone of the creative student/classroom/university, with guest speaker Adam Croom

Adam Croom is the Director of Digital Learning and an instructor in the College of Journalism of Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma. In this talk, Adam will narrate how he leverages the technology of the open web to stimulate his students’ learning and personal growth, and to catalyze creativity in his classroom.

Adam’s course project, which started off with a 15-student class, has grown into a university-wide initiative in which more than 3,000 students, faculty, and staff are given space and tools on the open web to write, build, and share. Learn how this project is providing soft infrastructure for teaching, learning, and, ultimately, creating a domain of one’s own.

Please join us Monday, September 26 at 4pm ET / 1pm PT for this important conversation.
