Connecting Classes #CClasses


Connected Classes is about finding ways to teach and learn with the affordances of the web's digital spaces. It’s also about trying to do it in such a way that we co-learn of “the digital” as we learn with and through it.

If you'd like to be a part of this current round, we'll need to get three sessions done before Christmas (when we'll next all be meeting). If you're not currently teaching but would still like to be involved then we'll work out how, several of us are already doing just that so email me  or tweet me @jonathan_worth


In early 2016 twelve of us from ten different institutions (nine in the UK and one in New Zealand) taught a connected classes using Twitter and blogs in six different disciplines, to classes who’s participants aged from 18 to 85. In June we got together at Open Lab, Newcastle University to share our findings and identify common design principles. The background for that first iteration is archived and as direct results between us we won two institutional awards, two grants and are currently producing three co-authored academic papers.
