ELI In Conversation: The Fear 2.0 Group

Web 2.0 tools have the power to transform education. Such a transformation requires that faculty, students, and institutions take risks. With those risks comes fear, which is often unarticulated. How do you tackle this fear and make real change?

In this 43 minute podcast we feature a conversation from the ELI 2008 Annual Meeting. Our particpants consist of a group of five higher ed professionals who co-presented the session, "Who's Afraid of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and the Big Bad CMS? A Digi-Drama About Fear 2.0."

They include:

  • Laura Blankenship, Senior Instructional Technologist, Bryn Mawr College
  • Martha Burtis, Director, Teaching and Learning Technologies, University of Mary Washington
  • Barbara Ganley, Lecturer in English and Writing Program, Middlebury College
  • Leslie Madsen-Brooks, Teaching Resources Center, University of California, Davis
  • Barbara Sawhill, Director Cooper International Learning Center, Oberlin College
