Ten seminar contributors, from three continents, will be present in various electronic forms, from pre-recorded digital video, to “live” presentations using a regular microphone or via GoogleTalk and Skype. Contributors include Nora Young, host and creator of Spark on CBC Radio, Patrick Leinen who invented a mobile app called Confession, Padre Mario Gaulin, a Canadian Air Force chaplain, Sr. Mary Coswin OSB, Director of St. Benedict's Retreat and Conference Centre, and Eric McLuhan, who, with his renowned father, Marshall McLuhan, co-authored Laws of Media. The seminar celebrates the 100th anniversary of Marshall McLuhan’s birth. McLuhan is widely recognized as the pioneer of contemporary media studies, including media literacy, who coined such popular phrases as "the Global Village" and "the Medium is the Message". He was brought up received his education in Winnipeg.
