Recording Talks

I have received some student satisfaction survey responses this week about the Sport Coaching Pedagogy unit I taught in Semester 1, 2013, at the University of Canberra. I find the text responses in the surveys very helpful. I do try to adapt my practice as a result of receiving these responses. One that caught me by surprise was that a student wanted access to video recordings of my lectures.

Connecting and Flipping

I wrote about Flipping yesterday. Overnight Mark Upton commented on the post. I admire Mark's work immensely and was delighted he shared links to examples of his flipping work: Coaches - learn how to do the "Flip" "video homework" for your players These resources appeared in July and August last year.

A read of Danny Brown's 52 Cool facts About Social Media started my journey. I delighted in finding these resources to grow my awareness of social media (driven partly by research for a paper on cloud computing and coaching). Aggregations of Social Media Links and Guides Jane Hart shared a great introductory guide to Social Media this week. I am constantly in awe of her awareness of...
