    I am offering a free 2-week online seminar about scholarly online interviews that may also be of interest to the E-Research Group. Two threads of conversation will be offered: one for educators about how to teach, mentor or review proposals from learners who want to collect data using online interviews. A second thread will focus on theoretical and practical issues for researchers (student or experienced) using or interested in data collection with online interviews. In addition to asynchronous discussions, two synchronous events in the second week will demonstrate the use of Elluminate and Vidyo for online interviews.

    With registration to the SCoPE community of educators, anyone can participate in this and other excellent seminars free: http://scope.bccampus.ca/. (Note: no additional registration is needed, simply join SCoPE and you can join the discussions!)

    Health is one of the most important factors for finding new strategies to adapt to climate change. So, why was health the “forgotten conversation” at the UN Climate meetings in Copenhagen? Are the implications too overwhelming to directly confront? Are the effects on health from climate change so pervasive that we assume our world leaders will take care of it in some way rather than insist that health guide their decisions? What is the proper place for human health in agreements on emissions targets and financial responsibility?

    Please join my friend, colleague and e-researcher Dr. Lynn Wilson on January 28th for a first-hand report from Copenhagen and a lively discussion of these issues. Joining Dr. Wilson will be Génon Jensen Executive Director of Health & Environment Alliance which represents more than 60 European health organizations. Hear their perspectives and offer your own about the issues of human health and climate change. I’ll be moderating and will look forward to your thoughtful questions and comments!

    This event is sponsored by IGI Global, SeaTrust Institute and the Collaborative on Health and the Environment. You may register for this exciting event at directly at https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/event/description?instance_id=18649 .

    It takes place 1:00 PM Eastern (EST, North America/US, see http://www.timeanddate.com for your time zone)

    Virtual Native Lands uses three islands in Second Life roughly representing North America to demonstrate and illustrate uses of virtual worlds technology to benefit real world Native American communities. Exhibits on the islands provide educational information about authentic Native American culture and history, and at the same time provide opportunities for group members to research both Native culture and the virtual worlds technologies used to create the content. The islands are a test bed, a sort of sandbox. All of the content on the islands is in flux, constantly growing and changing and adapting to new members’ interests and newly available methods.

    Virtual Native Lands is currently working on several new projects including helping to coordinate the building of a virtual library in Second Life which contains an extensive collection of Native American literature, and working with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in conjunction with the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum in establishing a virtual collection representing Olmec culture. We are planning to add a new island to the archipelago representing Indigenous cultures of Greenland and the Arctic. We have reserved space for an Indigenous Hawaiian island as well. We are developing resources for a Native American arts cooperative that can serve both Second Life Residents and Native Americans who are not members of Second Life. Through ongoing outreach, Virtual Native Lands is fostering many new collaborations every day with educational, nonprofit and commercial organizations in the real world and in Second Life which can benefit and be benefited by Native American culture.
