Learning2gether Episode #386
On March 20, Filipo Lubua interviewed Vance Stevens about his role as an CALL academic entrepreneur.
Filipo Lubua is a doctoral student in the Instructional Technology program at Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio. Dr. Greg Kessler, one of his dissertation advisors, recommended Vance to Filip as a suitable participant for his research, a study to understand academic entrepreneurial activities related to Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL).
As Filipo sees it, a CALL academic entrepreneur is any faculty, staff or graduate student who has created one or more technological tools or services that aim at providing support for language learning and/or teaching in any level of education. CALL entrepreneurs may not necessarily have established companies or firms for distributing their tools or services, but will have customers or target group of people who benefit from those products or services. In this episode, Filipo talks with Vance about the path he took during entrepreneurial opportunity recognition and exploitation, and the outcomes of that entrepreneurial endeavor.
Where? Google Hangout on Air
Vance’s normal streaming computer was out of commission and I had to use my wife’s Macbook. To record the hangout, I downloaded Screencast-o-Matic for the purpose. It did a great job as far as getting set up was concerned, and I was easily able to record my screen and audio, but the free version recording stopped after 15 minutes. At least it provides a talking head to associate with the audio that Filipo was recording and shared with me.

March 15-17 VWBPE2018 virtual conference
The Call for Proposals for the VWBPE 2018 Conference is OPEN!
Shalley Minocha presents
Participants tune in to VWPBE events
What scares you, but intrigues you about the new tech trends that are coming, and how can they be used for our purposes?
What exciting potential do you see in Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality? How do we bring them into the classroom, the boardroom, the office, the studio – to push the boundaries of what we do thus far?
The three formats for this year’s conference presentations are Spotlight Presentations, Hands on Technology Workshops, and Compass Points Roundtable Discussions. Proposals for Exhibits and Immersive Experiences are open now as well. We are a community, and everyone has an opportunity to share, whether you are an educator or have another role. VWBPE is not just for teachers!
The deadline for presentation proposals is January 8, 2018. That seems like a long way off, but it will be here before you know it! Your colleagues want to know what you’re working on, and what you’re interested in. You want to know what they are working on – encourage the people you know to send in their proposals!
