Gear Mask
This is a post that has been meaning to be written for years. It is the first in a series, I hope, chronicling the development and implementation of an #Open Introduction to Literature Course. The thinking behind this series has been rolling around in ...

Connected Learning: a personal epiphany

by

Pleiades
It happened just last Tuesday, and I’ve been reeling ever since. I was talking with a student during an office visit. The topic of blogging came up. I’m not sure exactly how we got there, but I brought out one … Continue reading →

Endorphin-induced thoughts…

by

29 degrees and not much wind at all … and I got out a little early.   I could hear talk and laughter from one early-party group this “Unofficial Saint Patrick’s Day.” Imagining having funding. Imagining organizing (!yes, I think crazy thoughts on bike rides) the Urbana-Champaign node of OER innovations.  The technology and its […]<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=resourceroomblog.wordpress.com&blog=12735171&post=11257&subd=resourceroomblog&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

The gist of this week’s readings and viewings to me is that there is a movement to take formal learning and open it up. By open it up, I mean a few different things: Connect formal learning in the classroom to activities and community outside of the classroom Create opportunities in the classroom for students […]

Professional Development Day!

by

Home Sweet Home

by

cozy socks and mug
Back in familiar territory for me, as a librarian. Thus the coziness of the post. I read through and listened to a smattering of the links for this week.
