Learning in the Digital Age (LiDA) Series

Please join us for a series of monthly discussion sessions exploring “Learning in the Digital Age” (LiDA). Sessions will include a brief presentation relevant to that session’s topic, but will emphasize open discussion and sharing of ideas. Presenters will be encouraged to share works-in-progress, early prototypes, and initial thoughts from their research/practice/product development in the spirit of a workshop that draws on participants’ input to shape the direction of their work. Novices, experts, and everyone in between are encouraged to attend LiDA sessions, as everyone has something to share and learn! To contribute to and/or follow our on-going discussions about Learning in the Digital Age, please join the LiDA Facebook group.
