LangCamp Live 2015

Page history last edited by Laura Sexton 5 years, 4 months ago Saved with comment

We have built such a strong online community through #LangChat, but how much more could we do if we could sit down together and collaborate face to face? That's exactly what we'd like to see happen, but the question becomes when? where? and how?

 

WHEN

Summer gives us a chance to reflect on the previous year and also dream up new ideas for the next year, so as your calendar fills up, fill in dates you are NOT available next summer.

 

June

WHERE

We can either try to find a sort of mid-point or set up a few different LangCamps according to region. Here's a #langchat map to start to see who's where:

 

 

@dr_dmd = I am in Napa, California

Dear all - although I am on the West Coast, and it looks like most of you are not, I have access to excellent meeting facilities, free of charge, at UC Berkeley here in California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. We can have classrooms, access to technology, and I can even arrange for UC Extension credits on transcripts if that is helpful. We can also create digital badges based on an assignment (i.e., a unit plan, with rubrics and a reflection, for example). I can make this available by setting it up through the Berkeley WL Project at the Berkeley Language Center, UCB. Just a thought if it is of interest. Berkeley is easily accessible by public transit from San Francisco International Airport. If there is enough interest, I may be able to set up housing through the UCB summer offices at a cheaper rate than an hotel. If it seems worth doing, I would need to make the arrangements no later than this Fall. 

 

No matter what, it would be great to have this vision become reality! Hoping for the best,

Don (aka @dr_dmd)

 

@SraSpanglish = North Carolina

 

I really like Don's idea of using a college campus, and it so happens that I teach on one! If we'd like to stay in the East--though I'd love an excuse to go to CA if I could swing airfare and housing!--I could check on facilities on my campus and potential credits, and there are actually a few more options in the area, too. We're about half an hour from the booming metropolis of Charlotte, right up I-85 too. I'd have to know the dates we're aiming for to make further arrangements, though, I think.
