We're very excited about the HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations coming up April 15-17. It's a virtual conference, with events being planned worldwide and coordinated by HASTAC leader and one of our co-founders Kevin Franklin plus doctoral student Jennifer Guiliano, and others at UIUC. We'll let you know more as it becomes available.
In the meantime, David and I are thinking ahead to our address on "The Future of Thinking: Learning Institutions in a Digital Age." We will have a bicoastal conversation, and then a live chat, still in the planning stages. So we'd love you to send us questions that might form the basis of that conversation on any aspect of our educational futures. You can use the Comments section below for that purpose. We'd love to hear from you. We'll be taping our conversation on Wednesday March 17 so make sure to get us your questions before then!
The conversation is based on our book THE FUTURE OF THINKING: LEARNING INSTITUTIONS IN A DIGITAL AGE (MIT Press, 2010) and available on a free download here: http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=12181. There's a link in the left sidebar that you can click on.

This years event will focus on grand challenges and global innovations in the form of technologies, research, teaching, and inquiry that can be leveraged across personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries. HASTAC 2010 seeks to ask: what are the influence(s) of virtual spaces that can transcend boundaries to impact global innovations? How will the next generation of digital technologies alter personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries? What are the grand challenges in humanities, arts, and sciences that will shape the next generation of global innovation?
