Though Summer is only just upon us, Media Commons Tailgate planning is already in full swing. The MC staff has started work on the Fall 2014 conference, to be held on Friday, October 3rd at the University Park Knowledge Commons. We’re incorporating feedback from last year’s event, themed “Branching Out” as well as direct input from our contacts across the Commonwealth. The upcoming Tailgate will feature a broad mix of innovative speakers, panel discussions, hands on sessions and conversation about the future of media in teaching and learning. While the theme and details are still in development, we can reveal a few early plans to get excited about:
- hands on workshop tracks to prepare for upcoming changes to iMovie, GarageBand and more
- campus roundtables, in which strategies for supporting innovations like One Button Studio will be shared
- opportunities to explore the intersection of Media Commons and technologies like badging, 3D printing and more
So stay tuned over the next couple of weeks as more information starts budding here on the Tailgate site. We’ll be sending out a save the date shortly, so keep an eye on your inbox!
