Our closing keynote speaker for Wimba Connect 2009, Mike Wesch, was just named as one of the four “2008 U.S. Professors of the Year” by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching.  Wesch and his three fellow award recipients will be honored in Washington, D.C. today, as they were selected from a pool of nearly 300 professors from across the country.  Read the article in Inside Higher Ed.  I just want to take this time congratulate Mike and his fellow winners (Wei Chen, a professor of biomedical engineering a the University of Central Oklahoma; Jerusha Detweiler-Bedell, an associate professor of psychology at Lewis & Clark College; and Eugenia Paulus, a professor of chemistry at North Hennepin Community College).  Great job and keep inspiring!  ...and keep making those cool YouTube videos too.
