Mike Morrison has proposed, and shared, some alternatives to traditional academic posters. They appear rather exciting, and I hope some folks decide to try these out at AES. Inside Higher Ed’s article on the Morrison and his proposed design: https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2019/06/24/theres-movement-better-scientific-posters-are-they-really-better Morrison’s fun 20 minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwJbhkCA58 Here are some of Morrison’s poster templates: https://osf.io/ef53g/ Here […]
OSU has hired multiple #InfoTech graduates to work as Instructional Designers at OSU. Some of our current students also work at E-Campus! Indeed, there are multiple connections that continue to grow. If you are interested in getting in that mix, and probably making more than most starting faculty at WOU, here’s the job description. A […]
Here’s a list of links to student portfolios. The list is not comprehensive. Portfolios from the past year or so at the top. The intention here is to provide students with a clear, curated collection of relevant links to example portfolios. ## More Recent Brock Bergstedt https://bbergstedt050.wixsite.com/mysite Kelsey Corder https://kcorder12.wixsite.com/portfolio Michelle Dyer https://mdyer16.wixsite.com/portfolio Matt Erdmans […]
Dr. Marcus Wenzel, Interim Coordinator of the InfoTech program, and I chat about the different exit options available in the InfoTech program.
This is the deliverable for the OER sprint, hosted by OpenOregon, that I participated in the past couple days. I had more to say, but WordPress did not save it in the draft. #sigh Here is the revised course reading and resource list for CSE 624.
A second text I found in this OER spring is the SUNY OpenTextbook: Information Literacy User’s Guide. This has multiple chapters for possible use in both Internet for Educators (so need to change that course name) as well as the Media Literacy course. While there are a lot of basic areas in here, I am […]
I’m in the midst of reviewing and curating OERs for CSE 624: Internet for Educators. One of the first resources I found was Caulfield’s text: Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers. I have only briefly reviewed the text, but there are multiple possible uses. 1. Providing process and overview to fact-checking for K-12 teachers–and how to […]
The past five days I have been working on redesigning a course so that it uses mostly, or exclusively, Open Educational Resources (OERs). Amy Hofer, from OpenOregon, is leading the sprint. The sprint is currently taking place within the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). I focused on CSE 624: Internet for Educators. I’ve taught the […]
In order to present the OTEN keynote, I wanted to have a nice looking presentation. My design skills are limited, so I looked for an option. I found Beautiful AI. There are smart design components, and I appreciate that. It allowed you to import your own images or use images, sans copyright issues, from their […]
Not the best results, sadly. When I use the straight embed code for WordPress from Spreaker, it just shows me the code–no embed or linking. However, when I select media and then put in the URL for the show, the whole course/podcast playlist appears. Not sure that I want to really use it this way, […]
