It was a great pleasure to speak with John Willinsky for this week’s ITConversations show. We refer to another podcast I mentioned here. As much as I hope people will listen to this week’s show, I think it’s even more important to hear that other one, which is a talk that Dr. Willinsky gave at the UBC Okanagan Learning Conference last year.
If you’re an educator planning an offsite meeting or workshop, I would strongly recommend that you use that time to do two things:
- Listen, together, to John Willinsky’s UBC Okanagan talk.
- Discuss it.

I could not find the talk, directly, by following the link, but a little searching around the site brought me to this page, where a link to the .mp3 file may be found. (Note that there is a space embedded in the filename — this didn’t seem to cause problems with accessing the file.
Just to be sure, Jon, this is the talk you meant, right?
Reading over my comment, I realize I should have specified that I was speaking about Willinsky’s UBC Okanagan talk from last year, not the link to the recent podcast.
Sorry for any confusion.
“this is the talk you meant, right?”
Yeah, sorry. I’ve updated the post with an explicit link to the MP3.
Don’t know if you came across Nature Precedings : Early Access to Scientific Results on O’Reilly Radar. Where they are following the physics arXiv.org model for a range of subjects.
