Peter Miller: Teaching in Second Life: more than pretty pictures?

About this video

This session will provide informal feedback from the presenter on experiences over the past year teaching classes in the virtual world Second Life. Perhaps unsurprisingly given the novelty of the medium for both staff and students, all did not go according to plan and the talk will reflect on issues raised and make suggestions for best practice in the future as well as looking at developments in this area generally.Digital storytelling shifts the balance of power by working with people to tell their own story – and to make it themselves into their own short movie. With the help of the Patient Voices team, the Get Involved 4 the Future project is working with local people with experience of using health and social services. They are making their own movies which will be used in a variety of ways to enhance student learning in the School of Health Sciences (and beyond) about being a professional. The digital stories themselves are still be ‘work in progress’ but the presentation will offer an insight into the process, the stories, and how it has been for storyteller and academic.
