rise_of_the_MOOCs

Share by Peter Scott I have tried, really hard, not to write about MOOCs. But I can’t keep it up forever, and what better time than the silly season to write about this phenomenon, which may transform higher education, or just turn out to be another damp squib. MOOCs, for anyone who has switched off from the [...]

Kindles, Nooks, And Why I Still Don’t Have An e-Reader (At Least Not Yet)

Kindle

Share By Rich Russell The season for reading is here, friends! I feel guilty about how little progress I’ve made on the stack of books nesting on my bedside table: a veritable, vertical library that teeters like some structurally unsound tower threatening to collapse and smother me in my sleep (a poetic end to be [...]

“No, This Class Doesn’t Have A Textbook”

Russell

Share By Rich Russell As an adjunct professor, I don’t always have the “privilege” of being able to choose my own textbook. If one is assigned for a course — whether that’s by me or by the college — I feel obligated to use it as much as possible. I don’t care for professors who [...]
