It’s the holidays, and this is the final episode of Down the Hall for 2011. We hope you join us for more great stuff in 2012, but first, listen to this episode! We have lots of great stuff.

First, Dave talks to Denise Lauritano, Co-Chair of the UBC Community United Way campaign. Denise tells us all about how the United Way gets the entire UBC community involved in helping fund and promote programs that benefit the entire Lower Mainland, including many educational programs. Even better, she tells us how you can get involved.

After that, your intrepid hosts discuss the future of course materials in post-secondary education, and ask that necessary question: are e-textbooks the answer?

All of this, and plenty of fun tangents too. There is much laughter in this episode, which is pretty good for a holiday episode.

We’d love your feedback on anything brought up on the episode, or just the podcast in general. Who knows? Maybe it will even get read on the air. Email us at podcast.eplt@ubc.ca

Just a note that the views expressed in the podcast are those of the hosts, and not necessarily the views of either EPLT or the Faculty of Education at UBC.

Down the Hall is one year old today! And what a year it’s been. It’s been a year of turnover (though thankfully that turnover happened right at the beginning), but we think we’ve really hit our stride and will continue to share with you interesting guests and engaging topics in Education.

So how are we celebrating? First, we have a gift for both you, the listener, as well as ourselves. Dave interviews Dr. Carl Leggo, a professor in the Language & Literacy Education department here at UBC. He’s also a noted poet, writer, researcher, and all-around fascinating guy. We think that all comes out in the interview as we talk about the importance of creativity and play in the Education field. This is a topic we’ve covered before on Down the Hall, but perhaps not quite to the extent that Carl does. This was a real treat for Dave, and we think it will be for you too.

After the interview, we discuss the podcast itself, taking you behind the scenes a bit. We also bring back former co-host Sharon Hu to talk about what she’s been up to since stepping down from her hosting duties. We talk about EPLT’s Instructional Design & Support Team (IDST) and the services that they offer to those in the Faculty of Education.

First, though, a bit of housekeeping. We’ve changed hosting services for Down the Hall, from Podbean to Libsyn. If you subscribe on iTunes, you’re free and clear. If you weren’t iTunes subscribers but instead were using other readers/podcast players, make sure you update the subscription to our new feed.
