Gettin’ Air with Bryan Mathers

The release of last week’s episode of Gettin’ Air came with bonus material… A new logo! I’ve loved Bryan Mathers’ work for a long time. My laptop is covered in work he’s done with the likes of Reclaim Hosting, Audrey Watters, OpenETC … just to name a few. I wear his work on my belly often in the form of my Hack Education t-shirt. His stickers are also on my tablet, my bike. It even makes our mini van a […]

Gettin’ Air with Remi Kalir

In a fit of extreme efficiency, it only took me 110-ish episodes to work out a good workflow for collecting and sharing some show notes for an episode of Gettin’ Air: The Open Pedagogy Podcast. Here’s how it works: Record a podcast episode with someone awesome. Remi Kalir fits that bill perfectly.Set a time with the also awesome Stephen Hurley at VoicEd Radio to broadcast the episode. Make sure your guest is available to listen at that time.Listen to the […]

Let’s Get Explicit

How can I explain it? If you’re all down with OEP (Open Educational Practices), I think that it’s time to make one thing clear… we’re a bunch of wannabe hip hop artists and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ll take you frame by frame it. According to The Zulu Nation, there are five essential elements of hip hop. In this post, I hope to describe each of them a little bit and then try to relay them into a […]

Tying The Room Together

This post is meant to be supplemental to two different professional learning sessions I’ve recently offered: Leave Room to Make Room, for the OLC Ideate Virtual Conference, andCreating a Course Podcast/Radio Show, for the Fleming College Virtual Teaching & Learning Week. I think the two sessions feed each other, so why not make one blog post for the two of them? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The first session, Leave Room to Make Room (offered with co-host/kindred spirit Jonathan Lashley) was focused on discussing […]

The Remote Possibility

The typical reader of my occasional blog posts is probably not so much the target of this one. You know this stuff. I’m writing to those students and teachers out there who don’t feel comfortable “going remote” and teaching/learning from a distance. And you may soon be forced to do so. I want you to know that I absolutely love working remotely. And I don’t think the idea of “pivoting” in person classes to online is really much different from […]

Extreme Quilting

I signed up to guest post for the OER20 Conference‘s blog in the lead up to the event running in early April in London. When an association focused on learning technology decides to have the theme “The Care in Openness” you just have to perk up, take notice, get in there and try to help hype that awesomeness. I also got a little weird with it because I tried to turn a blog post into a live radio event. Head […]

Bridging the job readiness gap: virtual tools for a new campus-to-workplace pathway

Photo by Brooke Cagle on Unsplash Broad access to the full range of dynamic liberal arts and science programming is the hallmark of an evolving Ontario high education system. But linking this education to the meaningful employment of learners has proved more elusive than building educational excellence. For many recent graduates, a gap continues to exist between what they learned in school, and opportunities to apply that knowledge in a professional work environment. A 2015 study found that 4 in 10 Canadian university […]
