Once a quarter, the group hosts an in-world GLF event on based on a theme of that is of interest to members. I had the opportunity to speak on the topic of "Learning in 3D" and also got to listen to some very engaging speakers.
The event kicked off with Dr. Arthur M. Langer the Senior Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation, and Community Engagement and Dr. L. Lee Knefelkamp, professor of psychology and education both of Columbia University talking about Digital Literacy.
Next, I spoke about "Learning in 3D" covering the concept of sensibilities and archetypes. Here is the set of slides that were used for the presentation.
Next, Dr. Fil J. Arenas spoke. He is currently an assistant professor of Organizational Leadership at the Squadron Officer College arriving and an adjunct professor at Troy University,
Montgomery campus in graduate studies. He spent 28 years in the military (14 USAF and 14 USN)and retired as a Lieutenant Commander, he served as a Medical Service Corps officer until he retired. He spoke about the Squadron Officer College (SOC) and how they are incorporating virtual worlds into their training program.
It was a wonderful tour of the SOC. Good presentations and great audience members, I had a great "virtual time."
