Welcome to episode 4 of the Edinburgh Napier Radio show!
This time around we’ve got a report for you from a recent SEDA event in London on Students Supporting Students. Then I talk to Christine Penman about her recent project involving wikis in language learning which won her an LTA award at the staff conference. Click the play or download button below to listen, or subscribe to the show in iTunes to have it delivered direct to your player.
As always, please do get in touch with feedback of any kind, especially on features or subjects you’d like covered in the future. Even better, if you’d like to record a feature yourself, from an upcoming conference, or on a recent project or paper of your own, then let me know – it would be great to hear from you.
