Next week, I travel to Toronto, Canada to present on a panel entitled “Utilizing technology to enhance and improve the learning experience.” The panel is being convened by the Teaching Section of the Association of Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action.
This presentation will be similar to those I have delivered in previous workshops on the use of social media in teaching. There will be two important differences in this presentation: (1) I provide more theoretical, philosophical, and instrumental rationales for the use of social media in teaching, and (2) The presentation is grounded in examples from an online civic engagement class. Additionally, I classify the examples using a framework being developed for an article that will (hopefully) be published in a symposium issue of the Journal of Public Affairs Education on social media and student empowerment.
