Now available: The Manifesto for Teaching Online (the book) – and launch events

We’re really pleased to announce the publication of our book about the Manifesto for Teaching Online (2020, MIT Press)!

We are hosting three online launchings with the author team offering snapshots of the thinking behind the manifesto, and opening it up for discussion.  Scheduled to work across timezones, please join us as we make the case that we need the manifesto now more than ever.

Launch 1: re-coding

Wednesday 16th September, 11am-noon

Whose interests do automation, algorithms and datafication serve? Manifesto authors Dr Jen Ross, Dr Jeremy Knox and Dr Pete Evans will be joined by Professor Neil Selwyn from Monash University.
