Paperwork Reduction – One Step Toward Campus 2.0 »

As mentioned in previous posts, I worked this summer on reconfiguring my office to be a paperless environment. The work on the office is now complete, and I am already receiving a favorable response from staff. One of the first things they comment on is the new overall appearance of the office itself.

blogging/podcasting = lecturing in a new format?

A good buddy of mine is a prodigous podcaster. He's also very involved in this network. He's also one of my favorite mentors in the W2.0 world.
