Manifesto for Teaching Online, 13 November

The authors of the Manifesto for Teaching Online, led by Clara O’Shea (University of Edinburgh, Scotland), will discuss the Manifesto on Tuesday 13 November, 12 noon SL time (which is 8pm UK time, see for times elsewhere) on Infolit iSchool in the virtual world, Second Life (SL), ). You need a SL avatar and the SL browser on your computer, to participate. All welcome!

The Manifesto for Teaching Online is a series of brief statements that attempt to capture what is generative and productive about online teaching, course design, writing, assessment and community. It was produced by Jen Ross, Clara O’Shea, Sian Bayne and Hamish Macleod members of the programme team on the MSc in E-learning at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and has attracted a lot of interest and debate - see
