The CCCC panels for 2014 are set, but the Digital Pedagogy Poster (DPP) organizers are just beginning to look for folks to present at the Indianapolis CCCC, March 19-22, 2014. Send in your Digital Pedagogy Poster proposals!
Please submit those proposals via this online form: http://go.osu.edu/dpp14.
Last year’s sessions in Las Vegas were both very well attended (over 150 attendees) and wildly interactive. We do our best to provide an engaged audience by setting up two rounds of posters. During the first round, second-round poster presenters are part of the audience. During the second round, first-round poster presenters are part of the audience. Of course many others join in as well. There will be few times when you are not engaged in deep conversations about your project or the projects of others. An additional advantage for those living in the Midwest is that we can involve graduate and undergraduates in the preparation and delivery of our poster sessions. One goal of the DPPs has always been to meet and talk to students from the classes where these digital pedagogies are enacted!
If you would like to propose a poster presentation (as a team or individually), please fill out the form at this address: http://go.osu.edu/dpp14. The deadline is October 15th.
If you are considering your options, here are answers to the questions most frequently asked about Digital Pedagogy Poster Presentations:
- Your participation this year will NOT count as your “one presentation” at CCCC.
- We will have our own “room” for these posters, and they will be held on Thurs & Friday, not on Wed.
- These posters will be reviewed (outside the formal CCCC review process, obviously). After the review, we will provide you by mid- to late-November with an official letter from the 7Cs indicating that your proposal was reviewed and that you will be presenting in Indianapolis. Names will also be in the Digital Pedagogy program (handed out on site) and in the CCCC online program.
Everyone interested in proposing a poster should take a few minutes to fill out the form at http://go.osu.edu/dpp14. But If you have any trouble with that form, just send this information to me via email <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
- Full name, affiliation, and contact information.
- A short ~50 word description of your Digital Pedagogy approach or assignment
- A spiffy title
- If appropriate, your team members’ names and emails
Because CCCC is committed to supporting these posters and other Computer Connection events, we are promised an excellent space that is well equipped and connected: power, projection, screens, tables, and poster stands.
2014 Computer Connection
As usual I am working with Doug Eyman to coordinate our poster events with the Computer Connection (CC) sessions. The differences between the two types of sessions are substantial. During DPP sessions you are one of 5-8 other poster presenters with an audience that makes its way around the room talking with all or most of the poster presenters. We manage the DPP events so that we have a built in audience of other poster presenters. The CC sessions are short, interactive, more traditional panels and involve a two or three presenters and a stationary audience. For a complete description of the CC call for proposals, go to http://computersandwriting.org/cc. Submit your CC proposal via email to Doug Eyman <email@example.com> by Oct. 15th.
