Join Terry Greene as he and his guests get some air time to discuss technology-enabled and open learning practices in Ontario Post-Secondary Education.
Gettin' Air with Mary Burgess. Mary Burgess is the Executive Director at BCCampus. Have a listen to find out why Amanda Coolidge's mom told her to follow and work for Mary no matter what she does for a living.
Dr. Kristopher Alexander
Gettin' Air with Dr. Kristopher Alexander. The Video Games Prof himself joins the show to chat how, perhaps, there is a more engaging way to do synchronous online learning than Zoom. And through his experience very nearly making it to the top of the Street Fighter III global rankings using the very worst player in the game, he shows that it's not about having the very best tools to work with, it's about working with what you got and working it to its fullest.
Gettin' Air with AJ Boston. AJ is an Assistant Professor and Scholarly Communication Librarian at Murray State University in Kentucky. He joins Terry to chat about the most scholarly of musical genres (Hip-Hop) and how it exhibits very comparable trends to librarianship for scholarly communication. He also opines that Gettin' Air is actually a triple entendre, rather than just a boring old double entendre!
Gettin' Air with Delmar Larsen. In honor of Open Education Week 2021, we chat with one of Open Education's biggest contributors. Delmar is the Director (and originator) of the open textbook platform LibreTexts. In this conversation, Delmar describes how LibreText's origins can be traced back to catastrophic childhood events. We follow it all the way through to its current state, which is an extremely rich and diverse ecosystem of open learning experiences. So far they've provided learners with oh just a few millennia worth of free learning time. We finish off by chatting about a few current issues in Open Education and how we might best move forward.
Dr. Jacinta Yanders
Gettin' Air with Jacinta Yanders. Dr. Yanders is a self-described pedagogy nerd who loves pop culture. She also is part of the podcasting team behind That Bleeping Podcast in which four academics talk about Degrassi: The Next Generation. In other words, she is the perfect fit for being a guest on Gettin' Air!
Gettin' Air with Shea Swauger. Shea is a librarian and Senior Instructor at the Auraria Library which serves the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver. In this episode, we discuss his piece "Our Bodies Encoded: Algorithmic Test Proctoring in Higher Education" and how he is still basking in the glow of being cited by Elizabeth Warren.
