Attendees have begun gathering in Bishkek for AMICAL 2018, the Consortium’s 15th Conference, hosted by the American University of Central Asia (AUCA).
The Program Committee has assembled a terrific program tied to the theme of “International liberal arts in a digital era: Reimagining a shared vision for libraries, technology and learning.”
But what if you aren’t able to attend the event? Not to worry! You can join us online:
The keynote speakers
This year we are pleased to have two exceptional speakers keynoting our event on different aspects of digital literacies:
- John Traxler, Professor of Digital Learning at the University of Wolverhampton, in his keynote will deconstruct the simplistic assumption that digital litercacy is “easy and obvious, almost a universal human right in a digital world. It should be the educational concept that underpins learning, prosperity and fulfilment.”
Digital literacy… is it critical? (5 May 2018)
- Both Gina & John will participate in a hybrid (of course!) discussion on digital literacies (6 May 2018). This Virtually Connecting session will be co-facilitated by Nadine Aboulmagd, Instructional Designer & Technologist, and Maha Bali, Associate Professor of Practice, both from AUC. To join this session, leave a comment on the Virtual Connecting event blog post or tweet to @vconnecting.
We also have two panels that will be live streamed.
We’ll be tweeting with the #amicalconf hashtag. Follow along and join the conversation!
See you all online!
