About the Learning Design Summer Camp
The goal of the LDSC is to bring together learning designers to keep abreast of current trends in higher ed. teaching and learning.
The third annual Learning Design Summer Camp is currently in the planning stages. In short, the idea of the Learning Design Summer Camp is to create a space for people involved with education technology to get together in an informal setting to show, tell, share, and create.
Please see http://camp.tlt.psu.edu for a history of this event.
Please use LDSC10 for all event tags in Twitter, Flickr, etc.
This event is open to all faculty and staff at Penn State. If you are an instructional designer, instructional technologist, media technologist, librarian, graduate student, or educator, this event is for you!

- Summer Camp is a time for exploring ideas and networking with colleagues. There will be a lot of changes to the learning design ecosystem in the next few years, so communication between all of us will be critical. What events and structures should be in place? Let's start this discussion here and keep it going throughout the day.

9:15 Keynote Session: Mind Sparking with 720

- Dr. Sam Richards
- Bio: Sam is a sociologist and award-winning teacher who has been inspiring undergraduate students at Penn State since 1990. When he arrived, Dr. Richards quickly reshaped a class on race relations, taking it from the lowest rated in the Sociology Department to one of the most popular courses campus-wide and the largest of its kind in the nation. Every year 1,600 students have the opportunity to re-examine the world and their place in it from a socio-cultural perspective. He is also one of David Horowitz’s “101 Most Dangerous” academics in America.

2:30 Session 2: Hacking Pedagogy
- 2:30 - 3:20 PM
- Cole Camplese & Christopher Long
- Description: To move from a teaching practice centered on the pure dissemination of content from teacher to student to one rooted in truly cooperative practice should be the new ideal for us as a teaching and learning community. Our goal is to provide a kind of field guide that is cooperatively developed and edited over time so that we as a community of educators can draw upon the wisdom of this group. Over the next two weeks, culminating with a cooperative session at the Learning Design Summer Camp, we will ask you (the Internet) to share with us evidence that education can be transformed, that it can be designed to empower a shared sense of ownership among participants, that it can be improved when learning spaces are made into genuine learning communities.
- Invitation: It is really easy to be a part of this ... we are simply asking you to lend us your content by tagging it with the tag psuhack across the social web or with the #psuhack on twitter. We will spend time looking through the submissions and see if we can identify a handful of overarching themes around which we can organize our content. At Summer Camp we will present the themes and introduce you to the loosely curated artifacts so that we can hopefully come to a shared vision of how to organize our publication. It is our hope that during Summer Camp you not only think critically about how this can impact your work, but consider adding new submissions live during the session.
