The Future Is Bright

Picture of the Yarra river at night in Melbourne, Australia.
What a wild weekend it’s been. Getting to spend time in Melbourne with Tim Klapdor, Jim Groom, Rowan Peter, Joyce Seitzinger, & Mark Smithers has been a blast. In fact, it’s been quite invigorating getting to know more about these phenomenal educators. Because, frankly this year has been rather emotionally taxing. The results of the […]

Gamification and Game-Based Learning QA Whitepaper

By |July 12th, 2017|cte, GOBLIN|

Fountain pen laying on a notepad on a wooden table.
Recently, I was given several questions as part of a whitepaper prompt covering gamification and game-based learning to submit to the InSync Blended Learning Hub (thanks Phylise!). I’ll be treating these questions informally and only plan to give off-the-cuff responses (no additional research happening here this time!). Alright, here goes nothing: Q1) How do you define […]

Hand drawing on digitizer.
Teaching is my favorite part of my job—hands down. Yet, working in faculty development, there are significant logistical considerations that must be addressed every time I want to experience the joy of teaching. Over the last few years I’ve streamlined my approach to the logistics that precede my teaching engagements on campus. This is an […]

I was asked to speak to a delegation of community radio journalists from Bangladesh next week. A description of the group: Participants will return with improved journalism fundamentals, understanding of the United States and American culture, and a perspective on convergence with and transition from terrestrial radio. This understanding will include the role and contribution […]

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

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 […]

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.

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 […]
