A couple of summers ago I gave a series of workshops under the aegis of the various Teaching American History grants that the Center for History and New Media runs in conjunction with area school districts. One set of those talks was captured on tape and is now available online. Watching yourself teach is fairly painful at first, but after a while, you begin to notice things you do well and things you do less well.
The question I have is how well a video like this would look on the small screen of the iPod in a vodcast? I don’t think it would work visually, because the camera is too far from the speaker (me), but those moments when the camera operator zoomed in seem like they would work on the tiny screen. During segment #2 I have one of the participants doing a think aloud and, if I were doing this is a vodcast, I would certainly have images of the sources she is looking at projected on screen. The photographs would be fine (I think) on the tiny screen, but the text would not, even though it is a short text. Students watching such a vodcast would have to watch it on their computer to have access to the full range of the images.
If you just can’t get enough of me after watching one of the video segments, you can also listen to an interview I did with WGR radio (Charlottesville) last winter in which I talk about my trajectory in the scholarship of teaching and learning (I’m at the bottom of the page). Or you can hear my contributions in to a podcast interview on copyright done by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society that is an exploration of copyright in the digital realm.
