It seems like “Open” ought to be easy

by rrdaniel2

[808 words] …Yet, it’s neither easy, nor free-flowing nor natural. At least it does not seem so to me as I try to “open” my course development and scholarly work. I know that others have discussed the challenges, but I intend to walk through this on my own two feet (figuratively speaking) and lay things … <a href="https://rrdaniel2-open-learning.blog/2017/07/27/it-seems-like-open-ought-to-be-easy/">Continue reading <span>It seems like “Open” ought to be easy</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=rrdaniel2-open-learning.blog&blog=123078728&post=493&subd=rrdaniel2openlearning&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Things Open

by greeneterry

DFQjOlNUMAADMlS.jpg
How did I become involved in things open? Funny you should ask because I’ve been asked to contribute to www.101openstories.org to tell my Open Education origin story. I’ll be on a live video call on that site on July 27th telling this story. If my past video experience can predict the outcome of this one, it […]

by GoogleGuacamole

Last week I announced that I will leave a non-tenure track faculty position to build my own consulting business, Bandwidth Strategies. The transition from faculty to freelance suits who I am and how I work.

Leading through Visualization

by GoogleGuacamole

Leading through Visualization
