The plan is to join this MOOC and associated network as a cohort.  The syllabus is here.
The initial task is to create a blog (for recording observations and posting responses to the various prompts and activities).  You can use http://blogger.com or http://wordpress.com or http://tumblr.com or http://posterous.com.  Then register that blog at pedagogyfirst.org and tag all related posts #potcert11

On Friday, November 4th from 9am – 4pm, the FLC Online Educators will host our 3rd annual FLC Innovation in Ed Tech Unconference.  This is an informal, unconference-style, lunch-on-your-own, collaborative, grassroots, on-the-fly, bring-your-own-mobile-device event – basically a supportive atmosphere in which to nerd out and talk about teaching and technology. All Los Rios faculty are invited to attend – beginners and experts, adjunct and full-time.

 

Additional details here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1G1hJX1XPhtG2ZBJY_mNrhXLW-0eC0Up_cH6j5MMsp_A/edit

Here is a list of the notes that I made.  If I’ve forgotten anything, or if you have other ideas, please stick them in the comments and I’ll update the post.

Potential date for Unconference – November 4
