Just to let you know there are (at least :-)) 2 courses at the Utrecht SummerSchool that might interest you: one on designing for WEB 2.0 (including an introduction to the LanguageQuest quality criteria) and another specifically about the didactic use of Interactive Whiteboards. And participants who would like to extend their visit to the Netherlands can apply for an additional period of campus accommodation at 125 Euro (!) per week.
