I undertook a double-header of training today: (i) Audio-Visual Systems; and (ii) Lectopia (our lecture recording system). The old days of ‘walk and talk’ have been numbered for sometime. This training will help me stay on top of the technology in our teaching spaces at La Trobe (and elsewhere, whenever I give seminars, etc.).
This follows on the related training session I did 6 months ago on basics of Moodle (our new Learning Management System as of this year). We are the first university in Australia to trial Moodle (prediction is that many others will follow), and signs are thus far that it has worked well. After some time off teaching, this was a great way to get me pumped for the forthcoming semester.
