Feeling Blessed And Loved, Even With Residual Tumor In My Head

By |May 14th, 2018|cte|

Coral pattern underwater that looks like a brain.
Last week was a big week for me. I finally got the staples removed from my head! (Read more about this in my last post.) But more importantly, I got the pathology results from the neurosurgeon. My tumor was benign rather than malignant. That means I won’t have to receive radiation at this time. (WAHOO!) […]

My Podcasting Workflow with Amazon S3 and PowerPress

By |May 11th, 2018|JMC|

I just hit the publish button on the season finale of Media and the End of the World. I have to say, it’s been a lot of fun to experiment with the medium from both a media and technical perspective. One thing you learn being on both sides of the production is your ticks. For […]

By |May 9th, 2018|cte|

Staples in my skull a couple weeks after my brain surgery.
I’m having trouble remembering all the details of my recent brain surgery, so I wanted to write down as much as I can recall. Here we go. What started out as a Tuesday night fever on April 24th had me in bed trying to cool down. Later that evening, I recall waking up in an […]

Yesterday, Mark Morvant, former executive director and my former supervisor in the OU Center for Teaching Excellence, publicly announced that he is leaving OU having accepted a position as the Associate Vice President for Academic Administration at Tarleton State University.

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 […]
