What would it mean to give students and faculty members a space of their own to imagine and think and build their identity on the web? At his university, Jim Groom says, it means “experimenting and building a broader community of experimenting, of narrating, of thinking out in the open” through a project called “A Domain of One’s Own.”
Groom is the director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies and adjunct professor at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He was interviewed because his work embodies the Conference theme and his DML2014 panel provides a strong example of the kind of projects and programs you’ll be introduced to at the Conference. (“Open Technologies for Learning: Putting the Learners in Charge” will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 6.)
The Digital Media and Learning Conference is supported by the MacArthur Foundation and organized by the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, located at the University of California’s systemwide Humanities Research Institute at UC Irvine.
