Whatever

I’ve just finished watching another entertaining & fascinating talk given by Michael Wesch at the Personal Democracy Forum in June. The Machine is (Changing) Us: YouTube and the Politics of Authenticity includes a ‘brief history of whatever’ and is definitely worth 30mins of your time.  If you’ve not come across him before take a look at my earlier post A Portal to Media Literacy for some background & links.

Wesch is one of the keynote speakers at next month’s ALT-C 2009 .  I’m really looking forward to hearing him talk and I’m hoping he’ll be saying more about his innovative approach to teaching; for example see his assessment scheme & collaborative lecture notes for next term.

I also like this quote from one of his students:

Dr Wesch taught me that teaching and learning is about asking really good questions not about finding answers

    Michael Wesch gave the keynote at Online Educa last year – he was a great speaker, and gave loads of examples – so you shouldn’t be disappointed.
