My friend, Twitter

by

I stumbled upon this Storify “Twitter for Academics: Advice for Users,” hoping that the comment thread captured in Storify would provide insight about how to use Twitter, both professionally and in my classrooms.  I’ve had a Twitter account since participating in an online course development initiative last year, and aside from a few feeble tweets […]

intimate #thoughtvectors

by

Today in our cMOOC planning meeting, Gardner Campbell posed the challenge of engaging students intimately in the process of writing in online concept spaces: to keep the private resolutely private, but still to approximate a model of personhood that involved deep, sometimes even emotional interactions with other persons over the interwebz. Our conversation quickly pivoted to the benefits […]

In Defense of the Argument

by

We have been talking about irony, so here is my contribution. I’m going to write an argument about why I think it’s important to teach argument in UNIV 200. Every semester, I tell my students during the first week (and … Continue reading →

Orthogonal #thoughtvectors

by

So I admit I do not fully understand why, but it seems as though Twitter swallowed this exchange: it doesn’t show up under teh #thoughtvectors search. This makes for a convenient opportunity to blog it up at length, since it’s also possible it got no play because it was incomprehensibly dense: @jonbecker Maybe write within […]

Threading a Four-Dimensional Needle

by

I’m following my colleagues’ footsteps (slowly but surely) in blogging about our experiences collaborating and developing the summer cMOOC of UNIV 200.  Among many other things (barring his disdain for Garamond), I share Jason Coats’s excitement for stretching conceptual space beyond our weekly group meetings to help continue mapping out what’s soon to come for the course.  I’m very lucky to be a part of a team […]

Who is this for?

by

And through the doorWhat do I see? Something is happeningIs it for me?  At our last Thoughtvectors/UNIV200/Living The Dreams meeting, I asked the team to start blogging our work together.

A MOOC? Really?

by

I’m having to answer a lot of questions lately about the Digital Engagement Summer Pilot of Univ 200, also a MOOC, a Massive Open Online Course.  Maybe it’s the combination of both these notions:  a traditional research and writing course delivered online AND a course open to the masses that baffles, and maybe even terrifies, […]

first #thoughtvectors

by

I’m glad that Gardner Campbell has plowed the field a bit and encouraged the design team of our summer cMOOC to start blogging our thoughts. I always find design meetings invigorating, not least because it gives us all a chance to see a bit more into the (often surprising and complementary) ways we each have […]
