Our second podcast from Faculty Academy 2006 is from a panel entitled A Conversation about Blogging at UMW led by Steve Greenlaw.
Without further delay we are posting our first podcast from the 2006 Faculty Academy. From the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies (DTLT), here is the podcast of the presentation entitled: A Fantastico Expedition: Massive Web Innovation on $6.95 a Month.
The fatherly grin gives it away. Gardner was quite proud of the 2006 Academies. The ITS’ presented him with framed posters of the Student and Faculty Academies from this year, and he was quite uncharacteristically 😉 speechless!
I finished the two days shaking my head that we actually topped last year. I want to say how proud I am to work with the people that I do, and how proud I am to serve the great Mary Washington Faculty. Thanks also to Jon Udell, Rachel Smith, and Cyprien Lomas for their outstanding contributions to our conference.
Near the end of his session, Cyprien raised what was for me a very provocative question. He indicated that he wasn’t sure what to make of these digital, Web 2.0 tools, and he wondered whether or not they might amount to anything. Is this stuff merely a hobby, or can it enhance the practice of science?
