Long post ahead!Posted: August 3, 2012 Filed under: Education | Tags: blogging, higher education blogging, whackademia 3 Comments
A brief note that the next post, due for scheduled release at 4am Central Australian Daylight Time (GMT+9.5), is about 2,000 words long because I got rather heated while reviewing Richard Hil’s “Whackademia.” You might want to save the next post for a short flight, such as that from Sydney to Los Angeles. If you are Richard Hil, you might want to skip it.
Have a great weekend or Friday, depending on your time zone!
We’re Number 51 – We Try Harder.Posted: May 19, 2012 Filed under: Education | Tags: area 51, blogging, dean's list, education, higher education, higher education blogging, number 51 Leave a comment
I’ve always said that if you can only read one Edu blog, it shouldn’t be this one. With Ed Tech’s release of the “The Dean’s List: 50 Must-Read Higher Education Technology Blogs“, it’s official! 🙂
More seriously, it’s a really good list of blogs that span a wide range of approaches and levels of detail. Whether you can devote the time to read them all while keeping a steady job? Hmmm, trickier. Looking at this list I see a lot of ways that I can take my blog in the years after my “must post every day for a year” commitment that I originally made.
Congratulations to all of the people on the list!
I suspect that I can now officially designate the alternate title of this blog as “Area 51”, with absolutely no authority whatsoever.
(Because I’m a measurement guy, I’d really like to see the metrics that they used to assess this. I think some reverse engineering might be in order…)
