Last year, CUE experimented with a new shorter presentation format (in addition to the usual 1 hour sessions). This year, these shorter sessions were an option in the formal submission process:
These quick, 20-minute presentations focus on emerging and existing innovations to enhance learning, productivity, or understanding. They should be noncommercial, brief, and focus on one or two tips, techniques, or resources. They will be recorded for the CUE podcast feed.
Several of the submissions ideas I am most excited about this year I wound up submitting as CUE tips sessions. The one I’m most excited about, and the one that that seems most appropriate to be a ultra-short session is this… think others would be excited?
Twitter Me This: Join a Global Learning Community & Feel Good About It
It’s a blog, it’s an IM… no it’s Twitter – more efficient than email or RSS! Learn to connect with others, discover resources, and share what you’re doing using “social microblogging.”

As you can see, there is a lot of room to add specifics to the detailed outline of the workshop (if it gets accepted – or if I get to do it elsewhere). Others have definitely written more than I have about using Twitter in education – not to mention those who have been enterprising enough to try it with their students. If any of you have recommendations about what I could (or should) include in the workshop… or any great examples, please let me know. Too, if there’s anything I’ve got wrong in the abstract (or if you have a different perspective) let me know. I look forward to any feedback you might leave. :)
