DEANZ 2008 – my place, my space, my learning

Last week I was in Wellington New Zealand, participating in the DEANZ 2008 Conference. I loved the conference theme, “my place, my space, my learning!” Oh yeah!

On the first morning I had the great opportunity to offer the kick off keynote. As usual, I firehosed my way through 90 minutes talking about stewarding technology for learning with an emphasis on PEOPLE. I tagged a few of the blog responses here along with some other DEANZ08 related links. Below are the slides that I used in the keynote. (I don’t think anyone captured audio):

I also facilitated two 2-hour workshops on Monday and Tuesday about the social and technical design of online communities. The notes from some of the exercises are embedded in a simple PPT which I will post on the wiki page – which is still a bit bare because I need to put in the notes, can be found here.

The conference was at the beautiful Te Papa Tongarewa museum – an amazing multimedia, multi-dimensional national museum of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Great staff, good conference food and a wonderful location rounded out the logistics side. Fabulous educators and presenters on the content side. I will write a separate post about that, but I promised to get the slides up…

On Wednesday I got to meet with some wonderful clients of Patillo, and on Thursday, Stephen Blythe of Community Central hosted a conversation which Steven blogged about. – Dags and Dingleberries

  1. Thanks for sharing this Nancy… food for thoughts as we continue to muse and plan our foray into this world.

    Sounds like the kiwis were in fine form. Dingleberries IS a laugh. When we had sheep I called them bum buddies until we went to OZ and learned about dags and the name ‘stuck’.

    Looking forward to meeting next month
