Guest speakers wanted

As many of you know, I teach part time. This year it is 4th year students in the BIT Program at Carleton University. The course is called Advanced Topics and the idea is to explore new topics, add depth to some already covered in the program. Students will be graduating at the end of this term and looking for work.

At our first class last Friday,  we talked about some of the areas they would like to explore in more depth.  These are listed below.  I am looking for folks with experience in these areas to speak to the class for 60-120 minutes. Depending on the topic and your style, it may be a lecture followed by Q&A , a demo, or simply a discussion. There is no payment.   The class occurs on Fridays from 2:30-5:50 until April, at Carleton University in Ottawa.

The Topics:

  • After Effects
  • Flex/Air
  • Mobile programing
  • 3D projection, TV and other technologies
  • Interactive interfaces with reality
  • How to find a job using the internet
  • Audio; music, SFX, and production
  • Promotion, of the tradeshow variety
  • Professional networking
  • Social Media (Ap Dev for)
  • Branding (partly covered, but could use more)
  • Open source
  • other topics relevant to Interactive Multimedia and Design

If you are interested please let me know and we will organize something.
Here is the Course Outline for more detailed information.

    Hey Thom,

    I’m sure you’ll get plenty of offers to speak about social media, probably from people more famous than I, but I’d love to tackle that one if you’re interested. I’ve already put together a pretty good presentation I’ve used for a couple of clients. A good mix of stats, theories and questions to get discussions going.



  2. Hello Thom
    I don’t mind helping out. Might be fun. The topic would be geographic in nature. Starting from data, metadata, api, service oriented architecture, applications, GEORSS, geotagging, yada, yada, yada.

    I won’t have much time to prepare, but I can do most of it online and on the board.

    Let me know if u r interested,

    Hi Thom, happy to provide some time. Perhaps I can talk about business networking from the point of view of tools, processes and attitude.
