The CELT Learning Technologies team at NUI Galway (and this blog) is mentioned in Ferdinand von Prondzynski's President's Log in today's Irish Times, under the headline Why I've joined Madonna, President Obama and 14 popes on Twitter. The DCU President writes:
Does Twitter have potential uses in academic life? Absolutely. One group showing the way is the Learning Technologies team at NUI Galway (who also have an excellent blog, learntechgalway. blogspot.com). All of their key staff are active on Twitter, and if you follow them you will be able to share in their experience of using new teaching methods and online technologies, as well as their thoughts on other matters.
I've just created a Twitter list (more on this in a later post) collecting together some of the people from CELT on Twitter. You can find it at twitter.com/sharonlflynn/nuigcelt. Another list of people includes the academic staff taking the Learning Technologies module as part of our Pg Diploma in Academic Practice, who have just been introduced to Twitter. You can find that list at twitter.com/sharonlflynn/celt09.
Thanks, Ferdinand, for the mention!
