Any academics I should know about? I'm just starting out, and have had a hard time finding people who are up-to-date -- many published journal articles go back to 2000! It seems like there should be more recent work around, especially considering how quickly the web 2.0 world evolves.
You could try an google Dr. Jodi Olmsted.....she has many papers and presentations in ed tech especially in the health field. another source that I find tons of information on teaching and student learning is the Sloan Consortium. theterm "scholarship of teaching and learning " will bring up tons of sources Mike theiss
