Hope you’ll join us for some or all of the sessions tomorrow at the ECMM Mini-Conference, where our M.Ed. students will be presenting on their work.
WI’ll be Ustreaming the sessions in one room if the students give me permission. I’ll tweet the address(es) when it begins. I’m not sure whether I’ll be recording any of the sessions, but if I do, I’ll keep updating the addresses–probably on Twitter, although I’ll try to post here too. If we just broadcast live without recording, I’ll probably just start it in the morning and keep the broadcast running until we wrap up around noon. I just don’t know how busy I will be. but I will try to check out the chat room during the presentations and pass along any questions or comments you might want to offer.
Here’s the line-up:
