In one hour I will be home. And with the time change I will be home now. A thought that feels so good it actually hurts.
To everyone ever suffering of homesickness for whom I was not sympathetic, I am so very sorry!

Earlier toot, see thread:
Please boost this if you have a moment! These are two of the best introductory resources I've found:
1) self-advocacy and "social model" focused (while not emphasizing "impairment" as "opposite of disabled")
2) self-dx and questioning inclusive, which is *really* important for women, POC, trans and enby folks, and people in the school system pre-1990s
3) animation version is helpful for people who have difficulties with text
Suddenly realizing that being done with course work means BEING DONE WITH COURSEWORK!
Sitting at the airport. Two weeks of doctoral intensive behind me. Now thinking about the road ahead to candidacy. Just a warning, my supervisor suggests that it include all of you... (suggestions welcome on next steps ;))
Last night of residency. I so desperately want to be home. Right now.
24 more hours...
A better look at the little sign I painted. ✨
No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.
You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.
It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.
@cogdog @Downes @jgmac1106 I'm gonna throw it out there that concepts of Open in education go back a lot further than these examples. Tannis, Viv and I did some work recently looking at the Open of the 1960s. Good stuff! And I think a lot of the spirit of that time became embedded in places like the OU and Athabasca. As a DE student at Athabasca *before* widespread internet, I know that the limitations caused students, course designers & faculty to think more openly.

@lauraritchie It is interesting that you find "consent" clinical. When I brought up respect someone else had a very similar reaction. I don't disagree, but perhaps believe it speaks to reclaim so many words.
And yes I completely agree that it is an acknowledgement. The example of the conductor is wonderful.
I should perhaps note that this is more an experiment with these words and ideas about which I have little certainty. Your thoughts are much appreciated.
