I’m happy to announce that I’ll be the new (volunteer) EDUCAUSE Review New Horizons editor, starting in January.
This is a one year appointment where I get to work with a variety of authors to make sure the New Horizons section of the print magazine continues to give its readers the best possible sense of emerging opportunities in academic IT. In particular, the column is meant to focus on newer technologies and technological approaches that are moving mainstream.
I’ll also write a thing or two myself, and as per usual EDUCAUSE Review publisher/editor Teddy Diggs and her staff will be doing most of the heavy lifting.
It’ll be an interesting challenge for me, as the readership of the print version of EDUCAUSE is very broad — only a fraction of readers are in edtech proper, and not all of their readership is even technical. Still, I have a list of things that I think people should really know about, and I’ll be doing my best to get good explanations of those things into the magazine.
Thanks to the EDUCAUSE staff for thinking of me and making the offer.
