Learning2gether with Jack Watson, Jennifer Meyer, and Robert Wachman about webcasting at TESOL 2016

Learning2gether Episode 328

On Sunday Apr 10 at the usual time of 1400 UTC Learning2gether met online with some of the people who made the CALL-IS webcasts happen this year at Baltimore:.Jack Watson, Jennifer Meyer, and Robert Wachman, and other CALL-IS webcasters to talk in depth about webcasting at TESOL 2016. Fittingly, we returned for this to the Webheads virtual office, http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/

We chatted about what’s involved in webcasting from TESOL each year and where we might take it from here throughout the year, not just at TESOL conferences. And we talked about people’s experiences and suggestions for improvement on what we do.

We’ll talk about how the event went, problems that arose, and successes of course, and what we might do to improve it next year. We’ll find out about challenges faced by those who worked to make it happen, who put themselves in the position of having to kickstart the technology while organizing and uploading powerpoints from numerous presenters, all in the ten minutes between presentations, and what motivates them to put themselves in that position. And I’m sure we’ll find out how much they enjoyed it and why they might convince others to give us a hand next year.

In Jennifer’s case, where she used Bb Collaborate to webcast from a recent TNTESOL conference, we’ll talk to her about what brings her to webcasting, what motivates her to risk it despite the odds, and what her experiences were webcasting the recent TNTESOL conference, what she learned, advice for other webcasters.

We announced the event on our TESOL list and cordially invited other CALL-IS webcasters from the just finished TESOL Conference in Baltimore to join us as well.
