|Conference||2010 NMC Summer Conference|
|Conference Track||New Media and Leadership|
|Session Mode||Featured Session|
|Co-presenters||Adeline Meira (Baylor University), Tim Logan (Baylor University)|
Baylor University's Academy for Teaching and Learning led an experimental faculty development seminar which immersed participants in the intellectual history of new media, encouraging them to use new and social media to extend their experience beyond the seminar itself. The goal was to help faculty be more thoughtful, effective, and courageous in their uses of new/social media by exploring them in the context of ideas that gave birth to the information age. This session analyzes the seminar’s design, recounts the experience, and reflects on lessons learned.
