Participating Virtually? Want to propose a session?

In keeping with the theme of THATCamp Hybrid Pedagogy, our goal is to open our un-conference to the broadest possible spectrum of blended and virtual participation. For those of you who cannot be here in person, but would be interested in leading a hybrid session, we invite you to propose one in the comments to this post. In your proposal, be sure to include your preference for Saturday morning or afternoon, or Sunday morning. Let us know if you’d like your session to include a blended conversation among online and on-ground participants, or if you’d prefer to facilitate a purely “virtual” session. Sessions can make use of any combination of Twitter, Google Docs, Google Hangout, Skype, etc., as platforms for participation. If you create a session, make sure you’re prepared to “host” it in whatever way necessary.

Depending on how many proposals we get for blended sessions, we will try to allow time on Saturday morning during scheduling for blended session proposers to “pitch” their proposals to the group via Google Hangout or Skype (or something similar). So, if you’re proposing a blended session, be sure to let us know whether you’ll be available between 10:00 – 11:00 am PDT on Saturday.
