Radio EPLT – Episode 8 – Ventures in Learning Technologies

Radio EPLT Episode 8 is now live!

In this episode, we cover everything from NCAA March Madness to Social Media in the Post-Secondary world. So we’re both sporty and educational!

First, we have an interview with David Vogt, instructor for ETEC 522: Ventures in Learning Technologies. He gives the listeners a lot of good information about the course.

Secondly, in episode 5, we discussed K-12 teachers and social media. In this episode, we cover this angle from the post-secondary instructor view.

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

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.
