Lecture/Seminar Surfing the Flows of the Net ? How Academia can Respond to the Deluge 2013-03-07 13:30:00

The ETCL will be hosting a talk by Scott Leslie entitled "Surfing the Flows of the Net – How Academia can Respond to the Deluge" on March 7 from 1:30-2:20pm in Elliott 061.  

Here are a brief abstract and bio:

Sector upon sector have already been disrupted since the advent of the internet, and many predict Higher Ed’s turn is next. Using the lens of Castell’s “space of flows” and Benkler’s “permeable” institutions, this talk will look at some specific strategies and tactics that point towards a possible networked future of the university.

Scott Leslie is an educational technologist, hacker, and open content/open network activist. For the last decade he managed Open Education projects for BCcampus, and prior to this worked for Mount Royal College and The Banff Centre. He holds a BA in English and Philosophy from the University of Western Ontario, and a MA in Critical and Cultural Theory from the University of Wales, College Cardiff.
