Good Morning/Afternoon,


My name is Cadey Korson and I am a Senior Lecturer in Geography at Massey University in Aotearoa New Zealand. I am undertaking a project on Lecturers as Content Creators, which aims to develop a preliminary typology for blended learning in tertiary geography courses in Aotearoa NZ and Australia, and explore the extent to which, and how, tertiary academics are creating their own multimedia/digital media content – for teaching.


I would like to kindly request your contribution to a 10-15 minute survey on your teaching practices and philosophy relative to digital media content creation and blended learning. At the end of the survey, you will have a chance to enter a draw for one of four NZD $50 gift cards and the opportunity to indicate your interest in an optional follow-up focus group. I am particularly interested in hearing from tertiary-level colleagues (including postgrads, PhD students and tutors) in geography and closely related fields.
