Starting the week of January 25, 2010, Gardner Campbell, NMC Board member and Director of the Academy of Teaching and Learning at Baylor University, is leading New Media as a Platform for Integrative Learning: A Faculty Development Seminar -- a 12 week faculty seminar at Baylor.
In this podcast, Gardner talks about the design and plan for the seminar, which is modeled after his undergraduate New Media Studies class. But what is exciting for us, is that this seminar is going to have a participation component for the NMC community. The seminars at Baylor will take place every Tuesday afternoon, and each Monday before that, we will publish a recording where Gardner will summarize what has happened the week before and let us know what this week's seminar will cover.
It was pretty close to the time of year last month when many of you were heading out for the holidays, so you may have missed the results of our December 2009 Two Minute Survey on Digital Cameras and Photosharing that were posted before the holidays. Given the popularity of modern cameras, we expect quite a few people might be using new ones on 2010!

Armed with only the crudest of tools, our NMC Archaeology Team has been sifting the far reaches of the office file server and the Internet Archive Wayback Machine to compile as complete a history of the NMC web site as modern web science would allow. Or that we had time to do!
You can find the full findings at http://www.nmc.org/about/history/web.
The main stratigraphic horizons we have been able to preserve on our own servers include:
We can tell you something about the very near future (October 27-29, 2009), when we invite you to take the longer view during the 2009 NMC Symposium on the Future.... here is our new video teaser for this event
How should we make this future?
While in Monterey for the 2009 NMC Summer Conference, we had the opportunity to video a short interview with Tom Bray (of the University of Michgan Digital Media Commons), who has been active in the NMC from the very beginning of the organization.
Tom and his colleagues Katherine Weider (Art & Design), Dan Fessahazion (Digital Media Commons) and Zack Jacobsen-Weaver (Art & Design) had won a 2009 Michigan Emmy Award in "Advanced Media Arts/Entertainment" for their work on the Animation Station, a fascinating portable studio that allows anyone to creation stop-motion digital videoanimation using real objects and markers.

However I wanted to record, primarily for my own sake, while fresh in my mind a recap of the social media tools we used (and other related factors) for our conference. I resisted using the title of "report card" ;-)
