On Friday: Amplified Seminar on “What Can We Learn From Amplified Events?”

Posted by Brian Kelly on 2 Sep 2010

Tomorrow (Friday 3 September) I´ll be giving a seminar on “What Can We Learn From Amplified Events?” at the University of Girona (UdG) in Catalonia. A summary of the seminar is available on the UdG Web site ‘ for those of you who understand the Catalan language ‘ though the automated Google Translate option is also available if you don´t :-).

As is appropriate for a seminar on this subject, the seminar itself will be amplified, with a live video stream to be provided on http://www.livestream.com/1c4d and there will be a Twitter back channel using the #udgamp10 hashtag. There will also be a an official live Twitterer, with Kirsty Pitkin (who has provided live blogging for the IWMW10 event) using her recently established @eventamplifier Twitter account to act as a live blogger – while blogging from her home in Bath! This will be the first time Kirsty and I have worked together to provide distributed live blogging support. It will be interesting to see how this works. As well as Kirsty, there should also be two additional live bloggers who will be reporting from the seminar room, one Twittering in Catalan and one in Spanish. Again this will be another first.

This is also the first time I have given a talk about Amplified Events, as opposed to organised or participated in such events. I´ve found it useful to reflect on the approaches we´ve taken in exploiting various networked technologies at events over the past few years. I´ll be describing how amplified events can help to “avoid the constraints of space and time“, can provide “real time peer reviewing” and reflect the views that “an open exchange of ideas will promote innovation” expressed recently by the JISC´s Executive Secretary Malcolm Read and published a few days ago in the Times Higher Education.

The seminar will take place from 11.30 (BST). Further information is available on the UKOLN Web site. In addition the slides are available on Slideshare. Note that the slides are also available on Authorstream and use of this version is recommended as it supports slide builds and animation.

But rather than being a passive consumer of the slides I´d like to invite you to view the streaming video and join in the discussions on Twitter.
