eBooks For Education

Over the past few months I've been participating in the SEDA-accredited Advanced Academic Practice program, and using it as an opportunity to develop ideas around using Apple's iBooks to support teaching. This last week saw two formal showcase events at which I presented along with my fellow participants in the course.

If you attended and watched the presentations, I hope you found them interesting. I've certainly had a good response from a number of different faculties across BCU, as well as within BIAD, and I'm sure a number of these will develop into new eBook projects. If you didn't make it to one of the presentations too bad, but I'll be opening out some of the ideas here over the next few weeks (and in a forthcoming podcast project).

In the meantime you can download the presentation in the form of an annotated PDF. This is a kind of attempt to provide a director's commentary alongside the slides, at least in text form. Slides are a very poor means of communicating when taken out of context, so this is an experiment at making them do a bit better job of that. Let me know if you have any questions.
