Robert Baird

Hi, I'll be facilitating our learning team with Rick Hazlewood. I'm also "eligible" to attend my 30th high school reunion this summer. That would be for Putnam City West High School of Oklahoma City. The Patriots. I vaguely remember trying to slow dance at prom to Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." Of course that song speeds up in the end and becomes a fast song, and no one on the planet can dance to it anyway.

Oh, the formal stuff, Assistant Prof. in Cinema, support teaching and researching with technology on our campus, helped with Ebertfest from the beginning, am a soccer coach and player, have a great wife, daughter, and son. Big bike commuter and blogger. Play guitars. Take pictures. Like to eat and cook. Believe in trees. Read great fiction in grad school and now only read non-fiction like Collapse, Ominvore's Dilemma, and The World Without Us.

From this learning team I hope to learn more about digitally recording in the "field" (while traveling, in the world, museums, study abroad) in ways that can be shared easily with others. And to have more fun than the other learning teams and to win the learning team tug of war ;)
