Today saw the issue of a very special request for proposals! Special if you happen to be interested in teaching in Second Life that is, and especially if you are currently teaching in a New Zealand tertiary institution. The SLENZ project was set up to design, develop, build and pilot learning activities that could add educational value to the experience of NZ tertiary students. In order to do this, the project team needs to work with at lest two groups of NZ tertiary educators, preferably spread across the sector and with access to a reasonable number of students (not too many and not too few!).
Today the SLENZ team issued their call for proposals from educators who would like to work with the development team. Full details are here . Realising that there may well be individuals out there with a passion but, as yet, no community, the SLENZ team are happy to help put individuals in touch with each other in the hope of creating a working team. So if you are interested just get in touch with either Terry Neal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or with Clare Atkins (email@example.com) or of course just leave a comment on this blog and I will get back to you 🙂
John Waugh has also posted about this today on the SLENZ blog.
