Skate

Working from home this morning began with an early walk in the snow. I went down to see the new ice rink by the clock tower. It was deserted and perfect and nothing beats an open air skating rink and I had somehow forgotten the magic of it. And OF COURSE I listened to Kathleen Edwards in my head. Because I also don’t have hockey skates. youtu.be/xcjOPLQx8Bc This is something I would never have done on a Thursday morning in […]

Let Me Express Myself

I am going to choose to represent what I am trying to convey in some text, a couple of images, and in a video. Why three things you might ask? Well, I just don’t want to have to type all the sentences it may take to express this thought. That could take a long time and I am lazy. I am adding the images because they illustrate one of the more visually interesting parts of the expression and do so […]

Reflecting on 2020

Normally, I post a year end recap of what work, projects, and writing I’ve done in the past year. I’ve decided against doing that this year. I’ve done things that are worth talking about and I’m working on projects that I’m excited about. But 2020 has been hard. The last thing we need right now … Continue reading Reflecting on 2020

Snap Decision

How are you? Simple question and how I start most classes. This week though…week 12…I unleashed a torrent. Stressed. Anxious. Scared. Really stressed. Behind. Tired. Exhausted. Too much to do. Did we mention STRESSED? It was a good conversation. Online classes are taking a toll. It feels like more work even if it really isn’t (I’ve reflected on this before and no doubt shall again). Deadlines and assignments seem hard to find. Online is harder. Without analyzing all this (another […]

Gettin’ Air Top Ten

Stephen Hurley of VoicEd Radio, likely sick of me sending him new podcast recordings to release on his platform, recently upgraded his Spreaker account to allow me access to publish new episodes myself. An extra bonus is that I can now see the stats. I was curious to see which was the most listened to episode of my main podcast: Gettin’ Air: The Open Pedagogy Podcast. And surprised at the answer! Not that I think the all time leader is […]
