From Within The Belly Of The Beast – Domains Inside The LMS?

By |June 20th, 2017|blogs, cte|

Man visible through window, standing in a falling apart shed that's in a field with mountains in the background.
Life has accelerated astronomically since my first #domains17 post, so I haven’t finished the other writing I was working on since I’m now headed to Australia for a short-term job. Fun fact, my domain actually helped me secure that job. 🙂 Anyways, here’s the rundown of my #domains17 presentation (PS thank Jim Groom for the […]

I’ll be heading to Australia to help RMIT University with their Canvas LMS transition. Since I just finished supporting the University of Oklahoma’s year-long transition from D2L to Canvas, I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve learned over the last year and using it to help RMIT use Canvas to its full potential. My goal […]

On Liaisons

By |June 12th, 2017|digciz, Music|

This post follows both a thread of blog posts from Amy Collier, Kate Bowles, and Maha Bali and (I think at least) contributes to a larger week-long conversation taking place in #digciz, which I’ve yet to quite figure out but describes itself as a conversation. I like that. There are a couple different pieces here. […]

Small is Beautiful. Metaphors and Other Musings from #Domains17

By |June 9th, 2017|Conferences, Domains 17|

I’m recovering from the week that was #Domains17 and want to thank everyone from near and far to took the time to come to Oklahoma City and be a part of this conversation, particularly Jim, Tim, and Lauren from Reclaim Hosting who suggested OKC. It’s likely that part of being an Oklahoman is wanting to […]

The Web As A Tool – WebFest Reflection

By |June 8th, 2017|cte|

Rock concert with blue lights
Last week I had the pleasure of hosting a new Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) training on campus alongside John Stewart. This training, WebFest, was centered around building websites and engaging in many of the conversations that surround DoOO. There was a much stronger level of interest than we anticipated and this professional development filled only […]

Inspiring More DoOO Power Users – A #Domains17 Perspective

By |June 8th, 2017|cte, Students|

Man repairing motor bike.
The very last conversation I had before departing #Domains17 was with Brian Lamb. We exchanged sentiments about how it’s more difficult to publish blog posts about our best experiences since we want to adequately represent our thoughts. This hesitation leads posts to the “eternal draft graveyard.” So thank you Brian, because after reflecting on our […]

Summer of Domains Love

By |May 24th, 2017|Domain of Ones Own, Domains 17|

I’m just getting to the point of the summer in which I have about two weeks to catch my breath before the bulk of my summer work activities get underway. This break allows me enough time to quickly catch up on some blogging I’ve been wanting to do. We just wrapped up our fourth academic […]

Testing out a new grade scheme

By |May 15th, 2017|JMC3433, Teaching|

This semester, I tested out a new grading scheme for my face-to-face version of PR Publications. I’ve taught the class 10+ different times over the past few years, and while all of them have been different to some degree, this semester was different in that I completely eliminated numerical grades from the final grade equation. […]

Website Spring Cleaning

By |April 18th, 2017|cte, Wordpress|

Lego stormtrooper cleaning a camera lens with a que tip.
Yesterday I changed from my original WordPress theme, Twenty Fifteen, to Cover. So far I’m liking the minimal design of Cover and how the blog roll page presents post excerpts rather than the full text of each blog post. In addition to this visual overhaul, I’m sifting through my old blog post drafts and deleting […]
