MAGPI is pleased to bring you this exciting virtual Advanced Networks and the Arts & Humanities Symposium event. The Symposium builds upon the success of the national Teaching and Learning with Internet2 Symposium that was held on April 1, 2011. The Advanced Networks and the Arts & Humanities Symposium aims to reach faculty, artists, non-profit cultural organization educators, and IT support staff around the technology and pedagogy supporting delivery of arts and humanities education and experiences over advanced networks. 

Advanced research and education networks, such as Internet2, offer artists, educators, and faculty opportunities to connect to a diverse array of resources and to collaborate with partners around the world toward the delivery of unique arts and humanities education. Through a series of keynote and breakout sessions, this half-day symposium is designed to give faculty, artists, and educators a taste of the range of projects and resources that exist and how they can be applied in their own teaching and outreach efforts. 

The Advanced Networks and the Arts & Humanities Symposium will be held virtually using H.323 videoconferencing and advanced networking. Host institutions are encouraged to register and open up their sites to faculty and staff for local viewing and discussion. The Symposium will also be available via live webstream to those not connecting interactively. View-only webstream sites will be able to interact and ask questions via facebook and twitter.
