One of the projects I’ve been working on recently has been related to a Higher Education Academy project allowing academics to explore further use of social media within their teaching (and so benefit the experiences of their own students).
I’m already fairly social media aware, but I jumped upon this as an opportunity to explore podcasting, through a project turning some of the existing resources I’d created on Professional Online Presences into social media.
Here’s the slides from a short talk I put together at the start of the project (they are also available on my SlideShare account).
I’m further along with the project now, but I have been keeping a short blog about the project, the podcast development and the successes and frustrations coming along with it.
Depending when you read this, there may still be more work to be done on the blog and the main site, but I hope it will provide another indication of the sort of podcast development and social media innovation which is possible within higher education. No doubt I will also write more about the project on this blog as well.
