Digital Campus

Digital Campus: "A biweekly discussion of how digital media and technology are affecting learning, teaching, and scholarship at colleges, universities, libraries, and museums."

I have been enjoying this podcast for a while. Digital Campus is hosted by George Mason University professors Dan Cohen (Director of the Center for History and New Media), Mills Kelly (author of the blog and Tom Scheinfeldt (managing Director of the Center for History and New Media and author of the blog Found History). Each episode begins with a directed discussion on topics such as copyright, counting digital scholarship towards promotion, or a special guest who works on digital humanities projects. The podcast then turns to the most recent news stories about digital education and humanities and the latest releases of shiny tech toys.

Digital Campus is timely, interesting, and frequently quite funny. And it is an easy way to keep up with the changes that technology is bringing to the ways we practice history and education.
