How can reflecting on histories of DML inform our thinking for the future?
On Thursday, May 21 from 11:00am-noon PT (2:00-3:00pm ET), hosts Sangita Shresthova, Gabriel Peters-Lazaro, and Andrew Slack talked with Nichole Pinkard, S. Craig Watkins, Henry Jenkins, Benjamin Stokes and Mimi Ito on the early days of the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub and the annual DML Conference, which began six years ago. By recounting the histories of DML, participants hope to surface new paths forward; they discussed the #DML2055 component of this year’s conference, a futures-oriented experience for all attendees.
This webinar was part of a May 2015 series titled Equity by Design: A DML 2015 Showcase, in which themes from the 2015 Digital Media and Learning conference are highlighted. Check out all the details at http://bit.ly/CLTVDML2015
