One thought on “Webinar Series on Connected Learning

  1. Thanks for mentioning our connected learning webinar series! Would also like to mention that–since we conduct these using Google+ Hangouts–we have up to 7 open spots anyone can fill each week. We just ask that, if you would like to ‘hang out’ with the guest speaker, you come prepared to dialogue about the topic at hand.

    If you are interested in joining any of the sessions listed above, feel free to email me at jbarilone-at-hri.uci.edu. There is also an open invitation to join the conversation via our Livestream Channel Chat (livestream.com/connectedlearningtv) and Twitter (#connectedlearning).
