ONS talks at the British Library, ACRL and a Slideshare feature
Update: the Columbia panel on Open Science video is now available.
This past week I gave two talks and participated in one panel discussion - with no jetlag or airport burn-out. Gotta love technology for allowing for that to happen.
My first talk was on Feb 11, 2009 at a session on Digital Lives at the British Library. This was a hybrid conference with a presence in the physical world as well as Second Life. I could see and hear the speakers in London from within Second Life and I'm assuming they saw my presentation just as clearly. Joanna Scott from Nature coordinated the SL session.
I then participated in a panel in Second Life on "Stepping into Science" on Feb 13, 2009. There was as good discussion about using Second Life for educational applications. The other panelists included:
- - Troy McConaghy (Scientist and Educator who has been involved with Second Life for over three years)
- - Dr. George Djorgovski (Caltech and Meta Institute for Computational Astrophysics (MICA))
- - Joanna Scott (Writer for Nature and manages Second Nature on Second Life)
- - Adrienne J. Gauthier, M.Ed. (Instructional Technology Specialist, Steward Observatory)
- - Tony Crider (Elon University)
And I just heard that my ACRL presentation on Open Notebook Science is currently showcased on Slideshare under the Education category.
Now I'm on my way to a physical conference at Columbia with Bora: Open Science: Good For Research, Good For Researchers?
