FemTechNet San Antonio Schedule

Anne Balsamo, one of FemTechNet's co-facilitators and host of "Labor" video dialogue

So, you've read our story about FemTechNet, the exciting, new alternative to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that feminist scholars are rolling out this month, and you're thinking maybe you want to check it out (it is free, after all). There's just one lingering issue: "What is it about?"

We get you. The nature of FemTechNet's Distributed Open Collaborative Course is by design a little hard to explain. I should know, I just wrote 2,400 words about it. But to give you a flavor of what to expect, below is the schedule and "stars" of video dialogues around which San Antonio's Taller is based. If you like what you see, check out the local Facebook page for more information and register (recommended, but not required) for the discussion groups here.

Video viewings and discussions will be held from 6:30-8:30 every Tuesday night at Geekdom.
