The Teaching & Learning Collaborative in coordination with the Digital Media Commons at the Monterey Institute is training an army of podcasters. The one unit, fifteen hour workshop titled Digital Media for Change meets Friday afternoons from 2-4pm. Participants are exploring new communication skills with digital media with a particular focus on affecting change. We’re reading and discussing the workshop text by Garr Reynolds, PresentationZen, and we have gathered online on a homegrown social network hosted by Ning: http://dm4change.ning.com. Participants will be helping the Institute build our capacity to capture campus events, speakers, and other stories that distinguish our community and reflect our mission. We’re building an army of graduate students, staff, and faculty to help us! And yes, we like cupcakes.
As the workshop coordinator I am using this as an opportunity to experiment with alternative course management tools and blogging. We welcome any and all who might be interested in what we are up to, so please feel free to join us on our Ning, or grab the RSS feed for the Dm4change blog that is being piped into the main page for workshop updates and thoughts from yours truly.
