Welcome to the Wiki of Comics Scholars in Second Life!

The Center for EduPunx, in collaboration with the Second Life campus at Front Range Community College, is pleased to announce its programming for the academic year 2010-2011.

Comics Scholars in Second Life resumes its monthly meetings on September 29th at 9:00 AM SLT.
(SLT is Second Life Time, the same as the US--Pacific Time Zone.)

EduPunx hosts these meetings on behalf of the participants, so the participants determine what happens at the meetings. Examples of past activities include:
  • Sharing research in progress
  • Exhibits of original art
  • Paper presentations (use our giant screen and make your ppt. or other format, appear three stories high!)
  • Grad student preparation for defense: Master's degree, dissertation proposal, dissertation defense
  • Dry run for upcoming real-life (RL) conference presentation
  • Classroom activities (faculty bring their students for extra credit projects or for student presentations of papers or reports)
  • Conference planning
  • Conference hosting
  • Role-play or game play
  • Activism

This year, we are particularly interested in participation from graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty from K12 and college programs with specific projects in mind. We can help you build your dream classroom/conference/research project/out-of-body-experience, so dream, dream big, and come and pitch it. Bring your students, exhibit their work.

The Center is happy to support activities that will benefit teaching, research, and learning. We're also just happy to hang out and b.s. Sometimes it's nice to take a break, visit with friends or classmates, and practice your virtual world skills.

Hope to see you sometime this year!
