Hi LiberationTech Folks,
Hope you all have some exciting holiday plans in the works!
I wanted to share an announcement about an upcoming course we're doing
organizing and open
We've got a great lineup of guest speakers but are also looking for a few
more folks to contribute. Email me if you're interested in being involved
in as a guest expert.
Otherwise feel free to circulate the announcement to your colleagues and
networks if you know folks how might be interested in taking the course.
We've run it a few times and it has helped a number of folks become more
effective in their work. Early registration ends next tuesday Dec 18th.

For those that are less familiar with TechChange <http://techchange.org/> we
offer online courses on our own dedicated platform using a number of
techniques including social learning, game mechanics, animation,
interactive simulations, and more. We're also looking to do a lot more work
in animation in 2013 so if anyone is interested in having us do animations
for their org then let us know.
