We're in iTunes

We're in the iTunes Music Store (for free, of course). There's a link to the right, or just click right here.

There are a few settings we're tinkering with -- we don't have cover art, for one thing, and it shows a bogus e-mail address as the author. But it works. We'll get them fixed soon.

Episode 1: April 2009

Wow. We got all excited about the first episode and went on talking for a while! We'll try to keep future episodes under an hour. First Anna, Rachel and Jason have a chat about how we ended up in the library classroom and what we think about that. Anna discusses the Cephalonian Method and Rachel talks about Critical Evaluation Family Feud, two active learning activities, and Jason interviews library consultant and author Beth Gallaway about gaming as a teaching tool.
