If you will be in Vancouver next Tuesday I invite you to come to what promises to be an outstanding session on podcasting from three of UBC’s most accomplished and thoughtful practitioners. It’s presented in conjunction with TAG as part of the Teaching and Learning with Technology series.
* Cyprien Lomas is the Director of The Learning Centre with UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems, in addition to his genuinely world-class efforts as Scholar in Residence with the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative… He was among the earliest adopters of podcasting and continues to offer a wealth of insight.
* He’s joined by his LFS colleague Duncan McHugh, who is one of those people whose combination of smarts and coolness (he’s a bigshot with UBC’s CITR, among other things) would have me seething with envy were he not such a such nice guy.
* We round out the panel with a newcomer to UBC, Alfred Hermida from our School of Journalism. Professor Hermida truly is a digital news pioneer. He was a founding member of the BBCNews.com website, which has always been among the most innovative platforms going. He was with the BBC for 16 years, working in TV, radio and online. If you haven’t checked it out already, the SoJ has a number of outstanding podcast initiatives.
