On Thursday June 10, 2010, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, I’ll be moderating a brand new session called “Objects, Engagement, and Web 2.0”. The audience will be composed of participants in the PEMCI conference at the University of Delaware, mostly graduate students involved in arts and humanities.
The purpose of the conference is to open their minds to the world outside of their domain of interest. As academics, we tends to be very narrowly focused on certain topics for which we become experts. But as you have all experienced in the past, experts are not always the best at communicating with regular folks… So a little training in selling yourself and your passion goes a long way!
My focus will be on establishing a presence using social media, web 2.0, and geo-location technologies.
To get started, participants are invited to skim read the articles that I have tagged with PEMCI2010 on Delicious.
