On March 15, CDL hosted the SUNY wide 3T’s Transliteracy, Technology and Teaching Conference at 113 West Avenue. Sue Thomas was our keynote speaker and she discussed the evolution of transliteracy as well as her forthcoming book Technobiophilia: Nature and Cyberspace. She wrote about her experience at the conference in a recent post on her Transliteracy.com blog entitled “What I Learned about transliteracy in Saratoga.” We learned a great deal from Sue Thomas and here is a link to a video recording of her keynote:

The Center for Distance Learning (CDL) at SUNY Empire State College is launching a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). As part of the MOOC, I will present on the topic “Transliteracy and Metaliteracy: Emerging Frameworks for Social Media” with Trudi E. Jacobson from the University at Albany. We will present our research on the metaliteracy framework we examined in the article Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy for College & Research Libraries. We will also discuss transliteracy as an emerging literacy framework that has been embraced by faculty and librarians. The MOOC has been developed by Betty Hurley-Dasgupta and Carol Yeager from CDL and will examine the theme “Creativity & Multicultural Communication.” This is the first MOOC offered by CDL and will include presentations by two of the pioneers of this format George Siemens and Stephen Downes. The CMC11 MOOC is free and open to anyone interested in participating but registration is required (it is free to register). The official press release for the MOOC is available via the SUNY Empire State College Web site.
MOOC designed by Carol Yeager
