Annotating EdTech Terms of Service

By |April 25th, 2018|Conferences|

This is part two in my wrap up posts from OLC Innovate 2018. My third and final presentation was demoing and gathering feedback on a framework and tool that Amy Collier and I have been developing over the past few months. This idea started after a panel presentation that Amy and I  were on at […]

Recapping and Reflecting on OLC Innovate 2018

By |April 23rd, 2018|Conferences|

I’ve returned from OLC Innovate in Nashville. Innovate holds a particularly special place for me for a multitude of reasons. Innovate, previously Emerging Technologies for Online Learning, was the first conference who’s attendees really felt like my professional network. I still remember my first dinner with Laura Pasquini, Ben Scragg, Jim Groom, Amy Collier, Jesse […]

I received a grant to adopt an open textbook!

By |April 4th, 2018|JMC, Teaching|

I was informed earlier this week that I was one of 13 faculty who were awarded the Alternative Textbook Grant that is provided by OU Libraries. Very cool! From the news release: University Libraries awarded Alternative Textbook grants to 13 recipients for implementing open educational resources for their classes in the 2018-2019 academic year. The […]

Finding Conference Funding for Undergraduates

By |January 30th, 2018|JMC|

My passion for having students engaged in our professional conversations has been articulated loud and clear (read here, here, and here). We need more of it. But when it comes to conferences, we are often faced with the question of how to find funding for students to attend with us, and often this barrier leads us to... Continue reading

One Year.

By |January 16th, 2018|Uncategorized|

For the last 365 days, I have not drank a single diet coke. I’ve never been fully diagnosed (I don’t know even if they diagnose this) but I’m quite certain I’m addicted to sugar (and sugar substitutes) and this addiction–while it is not limited to diet sodas–has most manifested itself best in this bubbly goodness....

Hiking in Beavers Bend State Parking

I ended 2017 by spending two and half days in Broken Bow, Oklahoma attending one of my oldest friend’s bachelor party. I first met Ben in middle school through my dad who at the time was Ben’s bus driver. We became friends in high school and although he migrated south to Baylor for undergrad, we... Continue reading

Media and the End of the World (The Podcast)

By |November 22nd, 2017|JMC|

Recently, Ralph Beliveau and I launched a podcast called Media and the End of the World. Podcasting is a medium I’ve wanted to delve into for awhile now and after a couple false starts trying to get one going, I’m really thankful Ralph asked me to join him in this endeavor. The format is fairly... Continue reading

The Criticality of Open Platforms

By |October 16th, 2017|Conferences, Domain of Ones Own, OpenEd|

platform
Below is a somewhat summary of the talk I gave in conjunction with Amy Collier, Daniel Lynds, and Jim Luke at OpenEd17. The tl;dr is that I’m convinced that need to start publishing analyses of the open platforms we adopt in order to bring transparency to a number of metrics to include not just data...

Croom: The Font

By |October 9th, 2017|Wordpress|

Yes, that’s right. I’ve now developed a typeface based on my handwriting. If you are looking for a very hastily written, chicken scratch type of font, may I suggest this option. I got this idea right before #Domains17. The great Bryan Mathers developed the poster and I had asked him for a high resolution copy... Continue reading
