The seminar was an informal chat with the renowned academic, psychologist writer and TV presenter Aleks Krotoski, she was in Melbourne to promoter her new book, 'Untangling The Web'.
The seminar went for 90 minutes, where the host chatted with Aleks about her career and book, and there was plenty to talk about in terms of the internet, culture and humanity. She is an engaging and entertaining presenter and speaker, how much I took away from the experience for my teaching is hard to define at this point. One point that stuck in my mind was how she described people are moving away from the their online life, deliberately.
