Last week I was responsible for introducing a faculty group to the concept of peer coaching.  Most in the room had heard of it but few had participated in any sort of formalized peer coaching experience and no one could define peer coaching or differentiate it from other forms of coaching, mentoring, or training. What is... […]

The video led me to ask–where can faculty members go for professional development on digital literacy (or digital fluency)? Maybe there is a MOOC for that—one that can discuss digital literacy in the context of our current … <a href="https://edtechnomad.wordpress.com/2017/02/24/theres-a-mooc-for-that-maybe/">Continue reading <span>There’s a MOOC for That (Maybe)!</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=edtechnomad.wordpress.com&blog=122669874&post=97&subd=edtechnomad&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">
