Educators and Trainers
We present an overview on the design and implementation of self-directed learning (SDL) workshops in Second Life. Using the popular project-based workshops taught by Blu Heron at the Builder’s Brewery as a model, come learn about how SDL may be implemented in innovative ways, where students work at their own pace on their own projects in an immersive classroom environment. SDL theories, processes, and practical applications will be discussed.
Participants will be able to understand the research-based theory and practice of SDL.
Participants will be able to apply concepts from an SDL-based model toward classroom practice.
