For the month of July HASTAC is teaming up with the Connected Learning Alliance (CLA) to produce a four-webinar series, stemming from the June 17 Aspen Task Force report, on Building Trust in Connected Learning Environments. This series is part of the ongoing conversation around the HASTAC administered and MacArthur Foundation supported Trust Challenge. The Trust Challenge funds successful collaborations or “laboratories” where challenges to trust in connected learning environments can be identified and addressed. Successful labs will create scalable, innovative, and transformative exemplars of connected learning that bridge technological solutions with complex social considerations of trust.

Trust in research, public scholarship, pedagogy and distributed learning environments. How are higher education institutions already embracing principles for creating safe, optimized and rewarding learning?

Speakers:

Audrey Watters - Technology and education journalist, and self-described "rabble-rouser & recovering academic"

Howard Rheingold - Author, virtual community expert, and self-described "online instigator & expert learner"
