Week 7: Open Faculty Development

For the final week of Open Learning ’18, we’ll be thinking together about the premise underlying both iterations of this learning experience: open faculty development in higher education offers a vital, unique, and uniquely effective opportunity for shared learning in the digital age. That premise can be contested of course. For that matter, each of […]

From Novice to Node in One Semester or Less

When I started out on this journey with the Faculty Collaboratives Steering Committee and the OpenLearning17 cMOOC, I found out that in order to fully participate, we needed to have a blog and a Twitter account.  We would have weekly Twitter chats (whatever those were…) and our blogs would be linked to the main site […]

Above – Stay on the Path A mashup I made from a google map image of Berkeley City College, a picture of the Campanile at UC Berkeley and an inviting meadow leading into a thicket of distractions. One year ago (April 2017), having struggled with the culture of incompetence across the Peralta Community College District […]

Might as Well Get Weird With It

by greeneterry

This past weekend saw Toronto host, for the second year in a row, the 2018 Creative Commons Global Summit. I attended last year as a participant but this year I wanted to do a little more by submitting a proposal to run a session about The Open Patchbooks. Rumour has it that my proposal arrived to […]

Although Open Learning ’18 has come and gone, the questions and issues linger in my mind. I continue to think about faculty development, and more widely, professional development. I wonder about the routine and damaging separation of skills and content, … Continue reading →

Faculty Development in the Open

by SueErickson10

What does it mean to do faculty development in the open? How is it different than typical faculty development experiences? For me, faculty development in the open allows me to connect with learners I might not otherwise encounter. My professional development tends to focus on library conferences where I get to talk and network with […]

“The Moral Crisis of the University”

by Gardo

Belshazzar’s Feast by Rembrandt
Michael B. Katz is a new discovery for me (h/t Roving Librarian). His scholarship on the history of public education in the U.S.is fascinating, troubling, and revelatory. I’m sure his conclusions are contested–whose aren’t?–but at times the clarity and forcefulness … Continue reading →

Faculty Development

by StephJBlackmon

I want to take a moment to emphasize the value of faculty development in an open environment.  Both OpenLearning17 and OpenLearning18 provided opportunities to explore open pedagogy “in the open.” They also created a space for connecting with other faculty members and administrators with an interest in open education. I value my time in both […]

Did I happen to mention I’m im#PRESSED18?

by greeneterry

The PressEd Conference (still going as I’m putting this together) was today. It’s a conference on Twitter, about WordPress in education. No travel. No expenses. No fees. Maybe not even pants. THERE WAS SO MUCH COOL STUFF. Take the rest of the year off and sort through #pressedconf18. What better way to collect the stuff from […]

What Makes a Compelling Faculty Development Opportunity?

by SteveGreenlaw

This post is going to be short and I hope sweet. The best faculty development opportunities I’ve experienced in my career haven’t been designed primarily (or explicitly?) for faculty development:  Examples include UMW’s Faculty Academy, ELI Annual Conferences, at least … Continue reading →

Tolstoy, Economics and OER

OpenStax - $ Contribution page
David Wiley wrote a recent blog post that had me scratching my head. In the post, David argued that OER is in a feature of the resource, not who is providing it and whether the provider is offering it for … Continue reading →
