[T.E.L.L.] Open spaces: WordPress in Teaching and Learning

[T.E.L.L.] Open spaces: WordPress in Teaching and Learning

The upcoming T.E.L.L. Tuesday webinar is on Feb 28 12:00-1:00 pm PST on the topic: “Opening spaces: WordPress in Teaching and Learning”, facilitated by Lucas Wright and Emily Renoe, learning technologists, Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, UBC.

In this session they will explore some of the potentials of the WordPress MU platform in teaching and learning in higher education. Lucas and Emily will share examples and lessons learned at University of British Columbia and facilitate discussion around how other institutions have used open blog platforms in teaching and learning.  In addition, participants will learn and discuss:

  • Ways that WordPress can be used to enhance collaboration, and interaction in teaching and learning
  • Lessons learned in the UBC context and takeaways for other institutions
