Re: Invitation to join me in Elluminate at 8 am GMT today for ESPPDO
- Hi, this session was recorded and can be heard here:
It turned out to be a discussion of tagging. Considering it was announced at the last minute it was well attended by Amer, a student at the PI where I work, John, one of my colleagues here, and Ingrid and Dennis (both from Germany).
At 45 minutes, this was a little gem, hope you enjoy it,

You can visit that link to view the ongoing meeting and you can replay the text chat there or see an annotated version of it in the Google Doc bulleted above (soon to be at the ESPPDO Posterous blog noted below), or find all the links referenced at the Delicious link in the bulleted list above.

> For our last session, our discussion will roughly follow what it says in the syllabus but will be guided by who turns up and what they would like to learn or share. We might just review what we've done in the course so far and propose what might be our next step in our mutual learning journeys.
