wayne glass & the pet dinosaur

Episode 83 is with Wayne Glass, a Residence Hall Director at Macalester College. Although he’s now settled in Minnesota, Wanye has lived and traveled in many places across the country, and we chat about adventures in the US. Before the show was recorded, Wayne was preparing to present at the ACPA conference in Columbus, OH. We talk about his presentation, being on a committee, and even about next year’s conference!

Dave EngEpisode 69 is with Dave Eng, Director of Student Activities at St. Thomas Aquinas College, and Doctoral Candidate at Northeastern University. Dave is studying games, gamification, and game-based learning, which fuels most of the conversation. Dave talks about gamification in our lives, such as earning steps and beating your friends with FitBits, getting candy with Waze, and of course Pokemon GO. During the time of recording, Dave was preparing to head to a gamification conference, which leads to a nerdy discussion teaching Jackie everything she needs to know.

The HighEd Web gang will be heading to Memphis, TN in October, and we talk about food, fun, sessions, learning, and an exciting keynote announcement that nearly kills Lougan.

1385931_10101307514592126_617766806_nEpisode 53 is with Aaron Knight, Senior Programmer/Analyst at SUNY ESF. We walk down memory lane and chat about how all of us met (spoiler, it was a conference), and what’s happening at the office. With recent newsworthy events on campuses in New York state, we take some time to talk about potential PR nightmares and how we can handle them on our own campus. On a more positive note, Jackie and Lougan talk about their connection to the Grammy awards, which turns into a tangent about Kanye West.

lisa catto & sixty hour minutes

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAbGAAAAJDU4N2ZkZmVlLTk3MWUtNDYwNy1hMzQ0LTFiYTAxMTYwNzc2YgWe hit the big 5-0 with Lisa Catto, Director of Social Media and Media Relations at Western Oregon University. Because she’s in Oregon and Lougan loves it, we talk about Portland…a lot. That includes public transit, ramen noodles, and the fact that it really is awesome despite what Portlandians say about it. With the new year starting, all of us are thinking about upcoming conferences, and we discuss why they’re awesome, how to be a newbie, and other great benefits. We close the show talking about social media groups, from faculty to students!
