ECREA 2010 Panel: Making Sense of Virtual Worlds as Sites of Innovation in Communication

The following are a series of videos shot at the ECREA 2010 conference in Hamburg, Germany. The videos combine to convey the panel our project organized on how users make sense of virtual worlds as sites of innovation in communication and innovative communicating.

The panel featured the following speakers:

  • CarrieLynn D. Reinhard, Roskilde University
  • Ursula Plesner, Copenhagen Business School
  • Lisbeth Frølunde, Roskilde University
  • R. Ates Gursimsek, Roskilde University
  • Stina Bengtsson, Södertörn University

The panel began with each person briefly presenting their research paper, followed by a round of discussion amongst the panelists on how they saw their papers relating to one another.

Due to the length of the panel, the videos are divided so that each person’s initial presentation is its own video, while the discussion is another.  The videos are presented in the order in which the presentations were given.

Ursula and the negotiation of use of virtual worlds by architects…
