[T.E.L.L. Summary] Open Spaces@UBC

[T.E.L.L. Summary] Open Spaces@UBC

Another successful T.E.L.L. Tuesdays with ETUG Lunch n’ Learn took place Feb 28 and was attended by 26 people. Lucas Wright and Emily Renoe, Learning Technology Specialists at  UBC’s CTLT shared with us the ways WordPress MU can be used for personal, community and course spaces in teaching and learning. Lucas and Emily gave us a great overview of WordPress and showed us some interesting examples on how it is used by faculty, staff and students at UBC. In addition, Lucas and Emily shared how they approach training and support of WordPress at UBC using the Sections framework for technology planning and integration. In all, we learned a lot in just under an hour! Check out the recording and other resources.
