@lightweight Agreed and look forward to reading. But could not hit the “like button” on this one.

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!

@benhamill I have no objection to having ice cream with wine, except plane is boarding and there is no ice cream nearby. Promise to get ice cream (and perhaps more wine) as soon as the plane lands.

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 ;))


Thank you! 12 more hours... I will make it...

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.

@compostablespork @lauraritchie Good luck Laura! Winding up my stay is a wonderful place right now. I also had good luck in Anaheim, though guessing that’s not exactly where you want to be!

@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 All of the readings I'm doing right now in curriculum studies are of the second variety. And IRRODL is wonderful, an Athabasca University publication. (I think of it as "my" journal).

here on mastodon dot social we have both kinds of people: FOSS programmers and communists

@lauraritchie @Downes

On this we agree. I like to think I do more "asking of questions" than "rebelling," but the result is the same: I quite often find myself in trouble.

@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.
