While we are using the university’s Moodle system for internal course exchange and the syllabus has changed some in the later weeks from the public version here, you can tune into parts of our course here:
As part of the course, graduate students in this course will be participating in the first CityCamp in Minnesota on November 12.
They will be assisting with event outreach, unconference day production assistance, and creating digital memories so to speak of the event to share the results with others.
Sharing is starting via bookmarks tagged “smedac.” Highlights each week being further tagged “thisweek.”
While students will experience the week to week readings, assignments, etc. via the e-learning Moodle interface, our syllabus is ready to go. Have a look via Google Docs.
We have details to fill in on a number of lectures and guest speakers, but you’ll get the idea about what this course will cover.
Work on the syllabus is rounding the corner.
Where possible readings will be linked to on the web. Here is a special PDF file SMEDAC – Week One Clift Readings with all the reading for after the first class. This package gives you a thumb nail of some of my direct experience.
Practicing what we preach, this is the public facing website for the Social Media: Engaging Democracy and Communities Online course at the Humphrey School.
Stay tuned. For additional information, see the course leader’s teaching page.
