Last week the account was hosted by Emma Cole, who's recently submitted her thesis on the modern reception of Ancient Greek dramas at University College of London. Submitting a PhD is already very impressive but every bit as daunting for me would be uploading my face to YouTube on a regular basis, which is precisely what Emma has done with her 'What Does It Look Like To Do a PhD?' vlog.
Emma uploaded two videos towards the end of her curation. The first is a summary of what she learnt about curating the account over her week and it can be found here. It's a really useful overview of the experience, not least to me as a backroom editor wondering how it feels to be in the hot seat. We've added it to our 'For Curators' page as we think it might be useful to future curators but do let us know what you think - do we need more/less guidance? If you've already curated are the materials useful and relevant?
The second of Emma's WtH's vlogs revisits her discussion of innovative assessment techniques, which had prompted a lot of interactions. Teachers of the world, check it out here.
Huge thanks to Emma for the extra time she gave the WtH project in producing these videos and for beginning our invasion of another social media. You can subscribe to her YouTube channel here and on Twitter here - she's one to watch (pun intended).
In the interests of full disclosure I should add that co-founder Krissie and I can be found on YouTube too in the form of last year's Social Scholar talk at the university of London. Can anyone watch themselves and not cringe?
