Since re-locating to Brisbane for his new appointment at the University of Queensland, NMC Board Member Phil Long remains active in NMC programs. In this NMC Conversation, recorded on a visit Phil is currently making in the US (something he does every 2 months), he talks to us about learning to work “bi-hemispherically”.
He also shares some of the differences and similarities he has observed having been at UQ since August, 2008, notably the way Australians have to deal with metered broadband network connectivity (and some hopes for the new Rudd broadband plan). Phil also describes some of the new projects that are underway at his new department, the Centre for Educational Innovation and Technology (CEIT).
We close with some discussion about the ways to foster the growing NMC Australian Community, which now includes 8 organizations (and likely more soon) and the impact of the 2008 Horizon Report Australia-New Zealand Edition.
