by

Laura DPLI Prez
Yesterday I had the great honor of dropping by the Digital Pedagogy Lab Institute (#digped) to spend the day with Kate Bowles and Maha Bali and participants of the networks track. Informally, I was there to be with my friends who challenge, inspire, and remind me of who and how I want to be in the... […]

Testing by ratatouille

by

Ben is the food blogger in the family and I don’t want to step on his toes. However, the other day I made ratatouille and I need to talk about it. Not about the ratatouille, really. It was an ok attempt. I had superior ingredients to work with: the vegetables all came from market stalls […]

I’m Not Throwing Away My Shot

by

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. It signifies one of several ways in which I am working to let go of “what people do” to be... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/im-not-throwing-away-my-shot/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=14936&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Better late than never

by

Until today, I had never been to the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine. Now, before you judge me too harshly: yes, students are in Paris with me for a month, but we visit a different location in the city every day. I can’t be blamed for preferring the real Notre Dame to a model, […]

Leading through Visualization

by

Leading through Visualization
Two weeks ago, Bonnie Stewart invited me to speak to #Ed6170: a faculty summer course in educational leadership sponsored by the University of Prince Edward Island. Bonnie focused her curriculum around leading under complex and changing conditions, because (1) it’s relevant and 2) it’s challenging.  In a move that I find particularly admirable, she created...

Composing a Life

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">

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">
