Lenses, Levers and Litheness for Faculty Development: Questions as one Mode

This website is a place that I, and others, use to stimulate deeply reflective dialogue about teaching and learning. Its essence is one of self-exploration. We use questions to surface and challenge our assumptions about teaching & learning, faculty development, scholarship, etc. We don’t offer answers; rather, we point to resources and throw a few thoughts […]

Teaching a Connected Course

I’m teaching again – a f2f graduate course, Design Challenges in e-Learning for Adults. The students are doing an amazing job of writing about their learning in their syndicated blogs.

Let Me Introduce Myself: From Pasture to Post, Tacit Knowing All the Way Down

I have been thinking about learning spaces.  Digital ones like #CLMOOC and analog ones like my pasture.  There is tacit knowledge in both, but for me the pasture is much more akin to what London cabbies call “the knowledge” than any of my digital spaces.

Why Start With Pedagogy? 4 Good Reasons, 4 Good Solutions
