Boring Within or Simply Boring?

I was reading this article on insidehighered.com the other day.All I have to say is BRILLIANT! (OK, maybe I am getting a bit carried away here)While the article doesn't point out much new information (for me anyways - sorry, I don't mean to sound like a snob), it manages to point out that a lecture is not an inherent ability that you are either born with or you are not. It's is a skill, an art dare

Attack of the bad powerpoint presenters

I had a good laugh when I read this over at the PowerPoint Ninja. The author goes though a list of the different types of bad PowerPoint presenter types (although I find that sometimes these types intermix).It's no surprise that I've survived a number of bad PowerPoint presentations.

Debate over the MLIS

I was over at Library Journal a short while a go and I came across this article about the "debate" over the MLIS (Masters of Library and Information Science) at the most recent ACRL conference.Personally I didn't know there was an open debate among professionals - just those among us that don't want to get one but want to work in fields that are traditionally staffed by librarians. Apparently there

Has the LMS jumped the shark?

I was reading though my feed reader the other day and I came across this post. The author and I agree on many points, and I have elaborated more with my face to face colleagues on this issue.I had brought up the issue of blogs, wikis, bookmark-sharing and other potentially useful. The response I got was similar to this:Well, the new release of Blackboard now includes the ability to do Blogs, wikis,

What's the point of College

In the past number of months I've been reading the Brazen Careerist, and I've seen a number of blog posts that can essentially be boiled down to this: "I could have learned what I learned in college on my own!" Now I've also seen a blog post on the UMassOnline Blog about the debate over three year colleges, and I see more connections.There are a few things that people should understand about college,
