On this episode of the Research in Action podcast, I’m excited to share something a little bit different with you. Recently I had the opportunity to participate in a podcasting panel at the Online Learning Consortium Accelerate Conference that took place in Orlando, Florida in November 2016. I was really thrilled to join a panel of other higher education podcasters. Let me share who you’ll hear from on this episode. The moderator for the panel is Kelvin Thompson, the co-host of TOPcast: The Teaching Online Podcast, who you’ve also heard from in a previous Research in Action episode. My co-presenters on the panel include Tom Cavanagh, the other co-host of TOPcast: The Teaching Online Podcast, who you’ve also heard from on Research in Action; Tanya Joosten, who is a co-host of Women Who Wine in Higher Education, you’ve also heard from her on Research in Action; Bonni Stachowiak, who’s the host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast; Jenny Quarles, who hosts Learning Lab; John Ernstberger, who hosts HigherEdScope; and of course me, the host of Research in Action. I hope you enjoy hearing the panel.
