Our LTSIG Co-ordinator, Sophia Mavridi, talks about the work of the Learning Technologies Special Interest Group and answers questions about her own presentation on Digital Citizenship.
This area of research is both fascinating and elusive. It’s fascinating with regard to the prospect of becoming more self-aware as teachers online, and elusive in the sense that we often fail to see how our professional and private personas can overlap and sometimes distort our carefully nurtured digital footprints.
Listen to Sophia describe her talk which will be presented as a practical workshop on carving out a professional online presence and putting one’s best foot forward online.
