Keep an Eye Out for Podcamps

Professional development and gaining experience from others is so important when it comes to podcasting and new media applications. When you go to a conference of podcasters, the energy and passion makes it worthwhile alone.

At Universities, and especially when we are on grant money, money for travel and conferences is limited. A free opportunity to learn about podcasting is at Podcamps.

A PodCamp is a usually free BarCamp-style community UnConference for new media enthusiasts and professionals including bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, social networkers, and anyone curious about new media.

PodCamp isn’t just about podcasting! If you’re interested in blogging, social media, social networking, podcasting, video on the net, if you’re a podsafe musician (or want to be), or just someone curious about new media, then please join us — and bring a friend or colleague.

Especially of interest to me is PodcampEdu, which is designed for educators. Check out the web site and locations. I might have to go down to San Fran this winter!
