This podcast is a recording with Dr. Clif Mims, a professor at the University of Memphis and the Executive Director of The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence in Memphis, Tennessee. On September 30th and October 1, 2010, The Martin Institute hosted it’s first  education conference, featuring two keynotes and 36 breakout sessions for area educators. This is the first educational conference I’ve attended where EVERY conference session was streamed LIVE over Ustream, and also archived for later viewing. Links to these sessions are available or are being added to the conference wiki, and are also available on the conference Ustream channels. It was also unique for one of the keynotes to be presented via Skype from an educator located on another continent. Tom Barrett from Nottingham, England, (@tombarrett on Twitter) presented about inspiring and engaging students with writing for an authentic audience using blogs. Clif discussed lessons learned from the conference, the unique opportunity the Martin Institute has to bring digitally blended professional development opportunities to educators throughout the south-central United States, and the GREAT doorprizes given away at the conference: Five new iPads and three new Flip cameras!
