Storytelling

I returned to community college as a non-traditional (adult) student after President Obama urged displaced workers to update their skills in his first State of the Union address. I had such a terrible experiance in Oakland’s Peralta Community College District I was forced to become a student leader. That led to being invited to a New Organizing Institute workshop to learn Harvard […]

The Platform Appearance Extensions What else? My personal knowledge base (PKB) is turning 10 years old this December. Back in graduate school, I wanted a way to keep track of not just resources and references and miscellany, but also a way to kind of keep my life organized. It’s actually something I talked about back in an episode of my podcast, The New Professor. You can have a listen here: Your browser does not support the audio element. Some folks […]

So Why SoTL?

This post is my response to the SoTL #2 Engage with SoTL activity, included in the Scholar Module of Ontario Extend.  Right from the first time I found myself in front of a classroom, I knew I needed to conduct research in education. Teaching and learning are incredibly complex activities, and as a twenty-something TA flung in front of a group of undergraduates, I was acutely aware of how little I knew about all of it. Years and multiple degrees […]

What’s With All The Sharing?

Today I had 15 minutes with the fine folks at the University of Washington-Bothell eLearning Symposium hosted by the Office of Digital Learning, to tell them about some of the things that I do to enable the sharing of pedagogy. I’m hoping that in those 15 minutes I convinced a few to come here and read this post. Because this is an attempt at telling them why. What’s with all this sharing? Here are my slides in which I give […]

Haida Gwai Happiness

Canada Day was celebrated in an extremely special way in 2019. After spending the early morn scouring Sandspit BC for coffee (no one should have to deal with Peggy pre-caffeine!), I trekked over to the airport to see if I would recognize BC peeps I only sporadically get the pleasure of seeing.  Before that adventure, I guess I will share a few shots of my solo meandering around Sandspit as I stretched my legs after planes, trains, and automobiles to […]
