Composing a Life

by

When I first came to JMU, I entered a new phase of life: new job as a dual professor-administrator, mother to a new baby (my second), and a new decade (I turned forty soon after I arrived). A few months … Continue reading →

When you are a muse

by

Being a muse isn’t easy. It seems like it should be, as you aren’t the one actually doing the creative work, but it takes a certain amount of courage to be willing to relinquish control and accept what other people do with you. I have a friend. He’s a very dear friend. He has my... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/07/15/when-you-are-a-muse/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=14596&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

I am Open (and so can you!)

by

AreYouExperienced-630x624
For the next few weeks, I will be taking a history course, something I thought I would never do again after I finished my dissertation. Shawn Graham is teaching an online digital history course at Carleton University and has opened it up for non-matriculating students. The entire design of the course is fantastic for open learners. Rather than […]

MOOCs, Motivation and Me

by

I am intrigued and inspired by Steve Greenlaw’s observations (in two parts) on motivation in the OpenLearning17 cMOOC and on motivation and MOOCs more generally. For OpenLearning17 specifically, I have an additional theory. Like Steve’s observations, mine are based on my own experience. I don’t have the data in hand, so I’m relying on Steve’s interpretation … <a href="https://sueerickson.wordpress.com/2017/07/11/moocs-motivation-and-me/">Continue reading <span>MOOCs, Motivation and Me</span> <span>→</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sueerickson.wordpress.com&blog=122834108&post=187&subd=sueerickson&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Reasons

by

I chose the apartment I’m renting this summer for all sorts of practical reasons:- it’s close to the students’ dorm.  – it’s close to my mother’s place.  – it’s on multiple metro lines.  – shops and other amenities are accessible.  – it is within budget. (<= super extra important) But if I’m completely honest, I […]

MOOCs and Motivation: Part 1

by

 

The powers of the President to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.
One of the criticisms of MOOCS has been that while they enroll a large number of participants, only a few finish. We had this experience with #OpenLearning17, but I wonder if it’s a bug or a feature. In this post, … Continue reading →
