Our first session at THATCampCC 2017 was about Accessibility & Design Issues In Distance Learning Courses. The session was moderated by Walter Huttner in combination with some ideas I also proposed for a session.
- Simplicity is important…keep things on one page…
- Need to have specific directions…click here first…
- Could create video tutorials
- Perhaps a Blackboard shell to discuss various CMS issues for faculty?
- Colleges need to have a list for students of what they need to ACCESS (skills wise) a distance learning course
- Which is also an ADA/504 accessibility issue…for example, making sure you have a script for videos
- Weekly versus modular scheduling
- Discussion of making sure distance students get the same “first five minutes” info
Our second session was moderated by Michelle Iden.
- Time management is huge issue in flipped classroom
- Make student notes the topic of classroom discussion
- Some discussion of how to teach hypertext fiction in the classroom
- could “flip” only one class per week…ask students what they want to “flip”
- How can flipped classrooms help to “unlearn”?
In June, our Board of Trustees approved my promotion to Assistant Professor. I'm not sure who I "assist," but I am happy to have that happen.
Finally, I will be a real professor too since I have been told in the past that since I "only" (lol) have an MA, I'm not a "real professor."
In January, the Board of Trustees awarded me tenure along with four other colleagues. I am looking forward to helping new faculty with this process in the future.
Last year I spoke at Rutgers University's digital humanities showcase about my work with ephermal archives. This has been a passion of mine for a long time and I want to do more exhaustive research on it in the future.
