OOFAT ICDE webinar

I guess I need to figure out a way to better IFTT vimeo things ;-) - Here is a recent ICDE webinar that I attended (probably should be on the IDStuff blog...but IFTTT does not distinguish between work, learn, and life content when I 'like' something on Vimeo. The title of this webinar is "Launch of the study: Models for online, open, flexible and technology enhanced higher education across the globe

Dissertation proposal (edit) submitted!

Well, after almost 2 months, 8 drafts, and a lot of work, I've arrived at my update dissertation proposal. This thing grew about 15 pages since my last draft.  Yes, some pages are blanks by virtue of needed to start something on a next page, or to not break-up a table, but I did end up having to explain some things a bit more based on the literature.  Hopefully I can form a committee soon,

Review: Case Study Research: Design and Methods

Case Study Research: Design and Methods by Robert K. YinMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Quite a thorough book on doing case studies.  This is the second book just on case studies that I have read thus far, and it seems quite inclusive.  I did like the Stake book (see review a few weeks ago) but this seemed to give more of a roadmap.  This is probably the 8th or 9th book I've read

Republica - Ready to Go

Song that fits well with the #metanastis theme. I think I probably heard it for the first time about 20 years ago.

3D printing...a mild success...

The other day I decided to test out my university's maker space where they have a varied assortment of 3D printer sizes.  I've always wanted to 3D print something...well...since I saw one at a conference, but I didn't have the opportunity up until recently.  We've had the maker space for a while, but it hasn't been high on my priorities.So, now that the semester is coming  to an end,

Schoolwork while on vacation...

It's amazing how much access to the internet is really woven into our daily lives.  For the past 2 weeks I've been away on vacation in Spain.  Before we left home I tried to be proactive, I scanned some of the book chapters that were due for my class while I was away, I got Assignment 1 done before I left, and I downloaded articles onto my Surface Pro so that I had reading material to go

이정현 - 아리아리 (Lee Jung Huyn - Ari Ari)

I think to start my #musicrewind tag I'll go with the theme of KPOP.   Back when I was working for Media Services (1999ish) many of my co-workers (and later employees) were Vietnamese.  Music that they played came from Vietnam, and a lot of the music they listened to was Vietnamese ballad-y type of music.  However, some of them did listed to music that I tended to listen to (dance,

Soul-Sucking Leadership

My team and I just finished presenting on Assignment 2 for our Leadership course this past week.  In going through my notes, collected over the past month of meetings and preparation for this assignment, I came across the term 'soul-sucking leadership'.  It's not a leadership theory at the moment, but hey - maybe we can coin a definition and become famous ;-)  What do you think? (actual

Lore no more! | Adieu Lore

Well, I guess the free LMS/social network Lore is going away soon!  I just got this email message the other day from the folks at Lore:I had joined Lore back in the days when it was called CourseKit.  The product, and the company, was created by a bunch of undergraduate students who wanted their face to face professors to use technology in the classroom - at least that's what the lore is...

Another apple keynote? When did that happen?

When I was younger I used to inhale Apple Keynotes.  I think part of it was Steve Job's presentation style that really drew me in.  I was also a big Apple fan (well, I still am), so I really wanted to know what products came out and get all the related specs and dirt as soon as possible  Early on this meant buying MacAddict, and heading to the Boston Public library to read the most
