Meet the Fellows & Reclaim Hosting special with Jim Groom (14 October Mini-Seminar)

A little while ago we were excited to announce not one but two mini-seminars this autumn. As you might recall, the first of these is happening next week (Wednesday 14 October) when we’ll be introducing our fantastic GO-GN fellowship recipients and an awesome special guest speaker Jim Groom, co-founder of Reclaim Hosting, which offers folks their own domain and web hosting, If you’re interested in digital identify, openness in research and building your profile online then you don’t want to miss Jim’s session. You may have also noticed that we’re offering GO-GN’ers the opportunity to have a domain of their own via Reclaim so you can also find out more about this then.

Excited yet? You bet! So what’s happening, when?

Mini-Seminar II (14 October 2020)

At 14.00BST Jim Groom will be joining us for an awesome special guest session on digital identity:

In a moment when just about every industry (including and especially education) has gone virtual on a timeline unimaginable just seven months ago, this “episode” will explore the increasingly important role of digital identity in our brave new virtual world. Not only will we explore the technologies and approaches that got us here, but we will also provide an interactive, streamed experience to demonstrate the increasingly blurred distinctions between that of user (consumer)  and producer (creator).

You can read more about what Jim’s planning over on bavatuesdays in A Stream of One’s Own.

So how can you participate in these fantastic sessions? Open to all, you just need to head over to:

Work out what time the sessions will be where you are.
