HigherEd BlogCon 2006 has ended. Our thanks again to our section chairs and presenters for an enlightening look at major issues and opportunities posed to higher education by the rapid move to “social computing.”
In the end, we posted 41 screencasts, podcasts and papers by 51 presenters. More than 12,000 visitors attended the month-long event on the Web, and an additional 1300 attended the two teleconferences hosted by CASE.
We now begin a process of evaluation and planning for HigherEd BlogCon 2007.
Among our questions:
– What key issues emerged that clearly merit further exploration?
– What steps might we take to increase the amount of direct interaction among presenters and attendees?
– How should next year’s event be organized?
To support a discussion of these issues, we’ve created a page in the HigherEd BlogCon wiki where all are invited to share ideas and observations. That’s at http://higheredblogcon.editme.com/.
Also, we’re inviting all section chairs and presenters to join a live online discussion the subject Friday, May 5th at 1 p.m. EDT.
If you’d like to participate in a long-running discussion of this topic with full access to the full transcript, please contact Dan Forbush at email@example.com and he’ll add you to the BlogCon chat area as a member.
If you’d like to participate only in Friday’s live chat, you may join as a guest at https://blogcon.campfirenow.com/24c45.
