Christmastime Reflections

by

This week,  I shook up my family’s television & movie comfort zone.  While we watch a lot less television than the average American family, I like for us to have one or two programs that we watch together: to stimulate conversation, to diversify our free time activities, to give me an excuse to hug my... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/christmastime-reflections/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=15266&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

by

We are deep in the heart of the Contemporary Pedagogy Syllabus and last week’s session on Inclusive Pedagogy left me reeling — in a good way. Talking with a diverse group of people about how to cultivate inclusive and diverse classrooms is ...

Change is… Good?

by

A few weeks ago I started updating my site for the new semester: making sure dates were correct, moving a couple things around, etc. When I did that, for a reason I still don’t understand, my site broke. Pages I am absolutely positive existed disappeared. Menu items led nowhere. I swore a blue streak. Once […]

Beyond the Content

by

It’s been a busy summer. Last semester, I was honored to be a part of the Virginia AAC&U Faculty Collaboratives Open Learning Hub steering committee. As part of my responsibilities, I was asked to evaluate and write the final report on the experience.  It was an informal and exploratory sort of document, which fits the... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/09/13/beyond-the-content/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=15251&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

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...
