2021 #VWEDU: Organizing our online PLC. Virtual Worlds Education Consortium (VWEC). Affiliated groups, wider networking and knowledge sharing

Organizing our online PLC. 
Virtual Worlds Education Consortium (VWEC). 
Affiliated groups, wider networking and knowledge sharing
A draft plan for our online Professional Learning Community.  Objective: wider networking, more effective sharing of knowledge.

Where are we now?

  • Our online PLC is now partly organized as multiple groups.
  • The broader community is based on informal connections among people in the groups.
  • A way to foster stronger connections is to have affiliated groups.
  • The affiliation plan can support wider networking and sharing of knowledge

Affiliated groups

  • Affiliated groups cross-promote each other.
  • Cross-promote means publicise information about affiliated groups.
  • The information may be links, mission, events, and other activities.
  • Publicize may be done inworld with  posters, notecards and event notices.
  • Blogs may have similar affiliations 

Proposed method

  • VWEC develops a list of groups that are ready to affiliate with other groups.

Affiliated presentations

  • Affiliated presentations are designed for distribution across the PLC.
  • The presentation will have a summary for distribution.
  • The summary will answer these questions:
  • 1, What problem are you addressing?
  • 2. What is your proposed solution
  • 3. What is the status of implementation?
  • 4, What links do you give for further information?
  • 5. How can people get in touch with you?
  • Affiliated presentations may be distributed as video recordings.
  • The summaries may be published on web sites or blogs and promoted by VWEC.
  • They may be combined with the flipped webinar plan: 
  • The flipped webinar: a strawman plan for the online Professional Learning Community (PLC)
