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 chattering […]

“Critical Thinking” – The Online Education Buzz-Phrase

thinking

by Robert Borger It seems to me that the new buzzword in online education is “Critical Thinking.”  I just completed a Webinar about the topic last month, have plenty of messages about how to increase critical thinking with my students, and see it come up in grading templates and rubrics continually.  This is something that […]

overwhelmed

by Robert Borger I have always had more than one job, ever since I started working.  This all started before high school, when I started the typical lawn mowing service for friends and neighbors for fun money.  I actually remember the article I read as a kid about letting people know about your willingness to […]

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

Russell

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 list […]
