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 →

Open Pedagogy Praxis

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">

The Search

evaluatingqualitativeresearch-1
We’re back in familiar territory for me on this one, though it’s less on my mind at a community college. Our faculty aren’t the ones doing a lot of the publishing, but we certainly benefit from others publishing OA. One of the main places my mind goes when I consider OA and this ideal future […]

#OpenLearning17 is Connected Learning

by

I was a bit daunted when I was asked to be a co-director for the Open Access week of OpenLearning17, and had mixed feelings when I realized that my co-director was a total stranger in Egypt.  Would this person be a good collaborator (yes!) and how would we plan a week of activities together when … <a href="https://sueerickson.wordpress.com/2017/03/05/openlearning17-is-connected-learning/">Continue reading <span>#OpenLearning17 is Connected Learning</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sueerickson.wordpress.com&blog=122834108&post=45&subd=sueerickson&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

I met this past Wednesday with Minnesota State Senator Patricia Torres Ray to discuss how to increase the opportunities for Minnesota teachers and students to use Open Education Resources – Creative Commons licensed curriculum. We decided to not add to try to add it to this bill, SF 158, dealing with STEM COURSE GRANTS; APPROPRIATION  which […]<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sabier.wordpress.com&blog=7270428&post=128&subd=sabier&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Connected Learning: a personal epiphany

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 →

New job, new narrative

Starting a new job has its challenges, one of which is introducing yourself and getting to know your work colleagues.  I attended my first faculty meeting several weeks ago.  I didn’t know anyone in the room except for my boss, so she introduced me, I smiled and waved, and the meeting went on. It was... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/03/03/new-job-new-narrative/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=11917&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

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 […]
