Summer Reads

Summer is here. I’m officially off as of tomorrow. But when you love what you do, you’re never really off, and though I absolutely intend to unplug most of the next six weeks, and I have some personal non-work projects to play around with, I also have some reading to do. Darby and Lang, yes, as already discussed. And it would be remiss not to mention how thrilled I am that St Lawrence College’s School of Contemporary Teaching and Learning […]

Excel-ent High-Speed Paper-Free Marking

At the end of the term, I mark a lot of essays. Learning the power of the technology I have has enabled me to improve my marking speed without sacrificing the quality of feedback that I provide to students. What works for me may not work for you. Students have liked my new marking approach, which provides more concise feedback for them and is faster for me. I would not always use this approach, but at the end of a […]

Pedagogy Refresh

I’ve been reading everything I can get my hands on related to teaching online. It is clear to me that you can’t just take classroom content, out it online, and get good results. There’s a skill to it, a revision of practices, a new set of considerations. It has been equally clear—and is now official—that fall classes at most Ontario institutions will be delivered online. There may be exceptions for labs especially as restrictions get slowly lifted, but they will […]

Resources and readings: General cybersecurity

This is a basic collection of general cybersecurity readings with an abstract/preview and very lazy APA formatting. I’ll be adding to this as time goes by and creating more specific reading lists, as well. Al-khateeb, S., Hussain, M. N., & Agarwal, N. (2017).

Back to School

In 2015, when I walked across the stage in the Convocation center on the main Ohio University campus in Athens, OH, and was hooded by my inimitable advisor, it occurred to me that I’d never be a student again. I’d be teaching, sure–heck, I was already a program director at that point–but I’d likely never get that feeling again of being on that side of the lectern, as it were. Excited for new ideas and topics and discussions and, let’s […]

The #PhD Adventure Begins at @QueensuSON with @marianlflude

My life is about to change. The mixture of extreme excitement and nervousness about embarking on a PhD is something I haven’t experienced in a while. I am so excited to engage with a community of scholars and grow my skills needed to conduct ongoing research, efficiently produce publications, and engage in focused scholarship. I feel ready. It took me what I feel like was a very long time to take this step in my career. I have been wanting […]
