Do you have a lecturer who uses blogs, wikis, podcasts, vodcasts, Facebook , Second Life or Elluminate to get your attention?

Two researchers are looking for QUT students to interview to find out what they think about lecturers using new media technologies as part of their teaching.

The interviews are anonymous, will take about an hour, and students will be offered a gift voucher as a thank you.

Dr Lynda Andrews and Associate Professor Judy Drennan from QUT's Faculty of Business are investigating how and why lecturers use these sorts of technologies in their units, and what students get out of it.

"Up to now our research has focused predominantly on lecturers, but now we are ready to get the students' perspectives," Dr Andrews said

"We're keen to find out how students perceive and experience these new media technologies as part of their studies and how they see them in relation to their own learning outcomes.

"We want to interview undergraduate or postgraduate students from any faculty where these technologies have been used either as an optional extension to the unit or where they formed an integral part of the unit.

"So, for example, if a student has been involved in Second Life in landscaping, marketing and law units, or wiki/blogs in industrial design, public relations, or management units, Facebook in any units, or podcasts/vodcasts in any units, or Elluminate to learn statistics, we'd like to hear from you."

The researchers would also like to interview students who opted not to participate in the use of new media technologies when it was optional in their units.
