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 […]

The Ghost of Questions Not Asked

by greeneterry

This is IDIGOntario‘s 2nd post of the #9x9x25 Challenge When I signed up to be on the IDIG team I very vaguely said that I would like to write something about the “Front End Analysis” phase of Instructional Design. Also known as the “what are we doing and why” part. If you do this part […]

Pitter Patter

by greeneterry

Soon you’ll be hearing the pitter-patter of little feet is a bit of a weird saying when anticipating the birth of a child. You hear a lot of other stuff for months before any footfalls.

Competency-Based and Precision education.jpg
We have all heard the challenges associated with US medical education.  They include the need for greater flexibility;  the modern student (medical or otherwise) wants to be able to customize their learning experience so that it fits in and around their other life pursuits and obligations.

Precision Education

by GoogleGuacamole

In 2015, the Obama administration launched the Precision Medicine Initiative as a means to support “the emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person.” Precision medicine signifies a transition away from “one-size-fits-all” medical research and practice and towards that which takes into...

Summer’s Never Off

by Meg

Yes, I’ve been going through the closets lately. Here’s something I caught that might be of interest: a closing keynote address I presented at the 2002 Mary Washington College Faculty Academy on Instructional Technology. It was an interesting in-between time. … <a href="http://www.gardnercampbell.net/blog1/?p=2588">Continue reading <span>→</span></a>
