The 1st conference of the Master’s in eLearning Pedagogy (MPEL), labeled “myMpel 2010”, took place last Friday, 14 May, at Fundação Portuguesa das Comunicações in Lisbon. It started out as an idea for an informal meeting among teachers and students from the 4 editions of the master’s program to exchange ideas and experiences, organized by Lina Morgado as the Master’s Coordinator, strongly supported by an engaged group of students from MPEL 3. In the end, it came out as a great academic conference shared by many people around the world through Elluminate (where some presentations were broadcasted), Twitter – #mpelconf – and the social site created to support the conference, with a handful of presentations, both from teachers and students, which were really worth attending. It was also a great opportunity for informal exchanges.
All considered, I’d say it was a perfect day and one to stand as a milestone in MPeL’s history.
I contributed with a presentation titled “Os PLE – Ambientes Pessoais de Aprendizagem na Universidade Aberta” [PT].
