I HAVE AN OBSERVER (pictured) who watches most of what I create during our emergency remote teaching sessions on our kitchen table. And I have collaborators online who use Airtable while iterating their content into distinct channels. This blog post is my first attempt to see if it's possible to use mobile phones to dynamically track media texts as they evolve from PowerPoint decks to Spotify segments to embedded content on LinkedIn and short videos on Twitter. Along the way the recorded content will percolate up onto YouTube and WordPress for review by a leading author and for reuse by younger students following similar academic programmes.
This is a skunkworks project and content won't be in place until June 3, 2021.
I get meaningful feedback from observers every time I share extracts from my teaching practice. I've embedded the Airtable I'm using to track the work of 34 students in the final semester of their Honours degrees. The hyperlinks could be easily used by externs reviewing student work. I believe some of my colleagues might see value in some of the academic skills demonstrated by fourth year BSc students who are in the final month of Honours Degrees accredited by the Limerick Institute of Technology.
