Enroll in Teaching Online: Facilitating Online Learning (TOFOL) mega course on active learning on from June 2-23, 2012 for free or the course on active learning starting July 15, 2012. The two courses are great follow ups of Dr. Curt Bonk’s current Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Instructional Ideas and Technology Tools for Online Success.

When it comes to “social” Gina Bianchini is at the top of the ladder. I am relationship oriented person in how I work, learn, teach, and connect with the thousands of people that are enriching my life. But am I the only one? Apparently not. Connecting with people is a way of life for many of us. It must be a very important aspect of our lives or social networks such as Ning, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and now Pinterest, Mentormob, and the upcoming Mightybell would be as popular as they are. So what is next? How is Mightybell going to cater to our social needs?
Social learning is part of my social needs. I learn through conversations and what better place than on WizIQ. I would like to invite you to join me in learning with and from Gina Bianchini on Conversation WizIQ on May 11, 2011 at 7 PM London time.
