University of Otago

On February 7, 2012 I presented “Integrating new technologies into higher education pedagogy in the United States: What problems do they solve? What problems do they create?” at the University of Otago, in Dunedin, New Zealand.

For those who have not yet visited Dunedin, the entire area is just stunning. I had the opportunity to see albatrosses, blue penguins, fur seals, and had a possible wild kiwi sighting on campus at Knox College. There are high cliffs at the edge of the ocean both north and south of Dunedin, and in center city is Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world.
