One of the projects in my Wilkes course is for the students to host their own live broadcast. Leading in to it, they need to attend a live webinar and reflect upon the experience. Most of the time, the experiences are largely positive. But every so often, it opens the door to something much more.
I can’t stress enough how much of an impact this first webinar has made on my view of “information distribution” using technology. In a matter of 15 minutes, I was able to search out a webinar that dealt directly with my field, attend for free, and now share an overview for others. Being present for a “live” webinar made me feel more involved, although I did not participate in the Q and A session at the end. I felt like a true part of the audio production industry, and reinforced my professional development in a simple one-hour segment while comfortably sitting in my office at home.
One teacher, one experience, one step… That’s what makes it all worthwhile.
