I am bit biased as I have known and had the privilege to collaborate with Jonathan on parallel open media making and his phonar open photography courses back in 2012~2104. And yes, when I visited he took my photo with his fancy film camera and I snapped him at the same time

As you will hear in the podcast, Jonathan’s perspective is fresh and insightful, bringing to me a needed perspective on AI and photography, but as well, glimpses of some truly innovative teaching he leads now at Nottingham Trent University.

And look! I enticed @Jonathan to join OEG Connect, so use this space to respond to our conversation with questions or comments. And I am hoping to rope him into joining an OE Week Live webcast during Open Education Week.

Thank you Alan! I’d love to connect or reconnect with OE folks interested in any of the themes you drove us into. Looking forward to next time. :slight_smile:
