Spent most of the day at MMU Cheshire. Met many staff from the Dept. of Interdisciplinary. A really good turn out, 20 signed in pretty much the whole department attended the session. It was good to see the Head of the Department in the audience too. This session was organised by MH. Plenty of interest and lots if questions and discussion took place during my presentation.
A few comments from the feedback form:-
“Very informative, thank you very much”
” Looking forward to my podcast attempts, Thank you, integrated systems sounds great”
“Very useful and interesting”
“Very interesting, just enough details for an intro. Will definitely follow this up and use again, thank you”
“Very useful start – lots to now start exploring”
“Excellent session, very useful”
“Excellent, thank you”
“The session covered what it was billed to do. The presenter did a good job answering questions, by the end I knew how to to podcast”
The discussion even carried on in the cafe bar with some staff joining Dee and myself. ICTS staff also happened to spot us in the cafe and we had good chat with them too.
MH made us welcome, and made sure the everything was all in place for us. The lecture room was a great location for the first part of my presentation. After that we broke for a welcoming coffee break and then a hands-on taster session on podcasting. My observation of this session was of staff really enjoyed creating a very quick podcast. My aim here was for staff to appreciate how easy it is to create a podcast and use it as part of their teaching. I feel that staff appreciated this session that covered LRT current project involvement and future thing to come.
A special thanks to MH for inviting LRT to showcase these technology and making us feel welcome.
And not forgetting Dee for giving up his time and helping me out both in the presentation and in the hands on podcasting session, setting the equipment and playing a support role.
Looking forward to meeting staff of Interdisciplinary in the near future again.
