On the nonlinear way my mind works

by

I always get a thrill on those occasions where, for a while, many things I read or hear or see seem to be on the same topic. Or maybe it’s just my mind seeing connections. This is a longish post, … Continue reading →

Using Hypothes.is to Help Students Read Scholarly Papers

by

One of the things I’ve learned from #OpenLearning17 has been the ability to use Hypothes.is to collaboratively read something online.  Hypothes.is is free software that allows one to annotate any webpage as one is reading.  The annotations are a layer … Continue reading →

OpenLearning17–an end and a beginning

by

We are in the last week of OpenLearning17. It’s been a marathon of learning and connecting, and the experience has reminded that I’m not built for marathons. The only sport I was ever remotely skilled in was fencing–short bouts where it’s not about endurance, but rather strategy, sizing up your opponent quickly and leveraging your individual … <a href="https://sueerickson.wordpress.com/2017/04/24/openlearning17-an-end-and-a-beginning/">Continue reading <span>OpenLearning17–an end and a beginning</span> <span>→</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sueerickson.wordpress.com&blog=122834108&post=96&subd=sueerickson&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Laying Out My Pieces

by

A quick thought on an Easter morning – When did we stop asking questions? Or did we ever start? I was in the doctor’s office the other day for a routine check-up. The nurse, who was going through the standard screening questions, said: “And you don’t smoke or drink alcohol.” I responded, “Well, I don’t smoke but... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/04/16/laying-out-my-pieces/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=13044&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

In Chapter 1 of Open & Integrative, Bass and Eynon note that many students are entering higher education with “uneven academic preparation,” with some of the students coming from “dysfunctional school systems” or other challenging circumstances. They go on to discuss the boon liberal education would be to those students with its emphasis on “critical … <a href="https://edtechnomad.wordpress.com/2017/04/10/musings-on-chp-1/">Continue reading <span>Musings on Chp. 1</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=edtechnomad.wordpress.com&blog=122669874&post=110&subd=edtechnomad&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

well lit rabbit holes

Noon I ducked down to our local “Maker Space,” which has open hours ’til 1:00.   I’ve been going there for years whenever something’s weird with whatever version of my dynamo hub light I’m trying to get rolling. Long story short:   the person who knows how to take gadgets apart & put ’em together […]<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=resourceroomblog.wordpress.com&blog=12735171&post=11749&subd=resourceroomblog&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

End of another era

by

Approximately seven years ago, I left a rapidly growing medical practice for an uncertain future. I didn’t have a plan.  Come to find out, I didn’t have much of an idea about my core identity either, because what I had was so integrated with my profession. The year(s) after I left medicine was (were) very... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/03/29/end-of-another-era/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=12894&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

A New Model for OER: Anthologies Instead of Textbooks?

by

I have heard that sometimes adjunct faculty are assigned to teach a class at the last minute, often with the textbook already chosen and sometimes with a syllabus to follow. No one should argue that this is an ideal situation. … Continue reading →

Welcome to OER Week of OpenLearning’17

Open Educational Resources metaphor
OER, which is an acronym for Open Educational Resources, seems like a no-brainer to me. In my 30+ year career teaching Principles of Economics, I have used a variety of books, including traditional commercial textbooks, books written on economic subjects … Continue reading →

Open Pedagogy Praxis

by

This week’s focus for OpenLearning17 has been Open Pedagogy. Co-directors Amy Nelson and Shelli Fowler have provided an engaging array of readings and activities that have inspired some great dialogue (don’t miss today’s Twitter chat at #OpenLearning17). Inspired by all that I’ve been reading this week, I talked with a colleague here in my library … <a href="https://sueerickson.wordpress.com/2017/03/17/open-pedagogy-praxis/">Continue reading <span>Open Pedagogy Praxis</span> <span>→</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sueerickson.wordpress.com&blog=122834108&post=59&subd=sueerickson&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">
