- The IARSLCE 2011 & 2012 Conference Proceedings wikis –
http://iarslceproceedings.wikispaces.com/ – This is more of a resource site to share. It’s a searchable wiki that provides abstracts and reference lists for conference presentations from the 2011 IARSLCE conf. It can be a helpful starting point for someone interested in learning more about various SL/CE topics. A number of graduate students have identified it as a helpful tool for their research and scholarship.
The 2012 proceedings wiki is at http://www.iarslceproceedings2012.wikispaces.com/.
- CIRCLE Summer Institute of Civic Studies at Tufts — which is demanding and wonderful — and have attached the link to the topics and readings there.
