At last: “Science Bit–The MOVIE!”

Well, kind of. Here is a video of the keynote lecture I gave as part of the #celt12 ‘Written Word’ conference held last June in Galway, Ireland. Why not set aside 29 minutes or so of your life and watch something exciting, witty, and informative? Okay, shhh down the back. Get your shoes off and take a look at this…

The lecture is called Literacy in the 21st Century: Word, Web, Woo. (See what I did there?) Further information below the break…

The lecture was part of this exciting conference  – The Written Word: Writing, Publishing, and Communication in Higher Education  organised by the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at NUI Galway. You might recall me describing the whole shindig on these pages before. Of course you will certainly remember my amazing tweets.

And this gift keeps on giving: some of the other keynote lectures, including those by Adam Rutherford, Mary R. Lea, and Catherine Cronin, have also been posted. (A big thank you to @iainmacl for doing the posting…)

Who needs DVD boxsets anyway?
