Session Type: Full-Day Seminar
Personal authoring technologies have made it easier than ever for instructors and students to contribute their thoughts, experiences, and opinions to a global discourse. In addition, these technologies provide a rich opportunity for instructors to focus their students' attention on discipline-specific questions related to a single course or topic.

This seminar will give attendees valuable "face time" with blogs, wikis, and podcasts in order to critically assess their instructional value and creative potential, as well as the IT infrastructure required to support them. We will demonstrate the numerous technologies UW-Madison is using, discuss the pedagogical application and assessment of these technologies, present an overview of IT support challenges, and provide hands-on experiences with the production of blogs, wikis, and podcasts. The seminar will conclude with a discussion of other personal authoring technologies emerging on the educational horizon.

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to bring a laptop computer with wireless connectivity and a Web browser. Please download the free audio editing application called Audacity from You are also encouraged to bring a laptop microphone. If circumstances prevent you from bringing a laptop to the seminar, please e-mail Victoria Fanning at .
