Spring 2007

Well…it’s time to get back into the swing of the school year. One of my resolutions is to blog more regularly. On some level, I really need to use it as a reflective area for all the craziness I am doing. So, some of the stuff you will get rants, raves, and other reflections upon this spring:

  1. online readings about teaching and technology
  2. my Ocotillo R&D research, primarily about using Web 2.0 tools in teaching: this semester I’m playing with:
    1. MySpace as a course management system
    2. YouTube (it’s got some great videos of older films by women directors that are buried in university libraries, and of course, there are videos about shoes…(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYnn51C3X_w rated R for language and shoe fetishism!)
    3. Personal portals
    4. podcasting
    5. Other usual suspects: social bookmarking, blogging
  3. my Sandbox Workshop series, related to the Ocotillo R&D stuff
  4. finishing the dissertation
  5. planning a wedding (YES…I got engaged over the holidays)
  6. trying to get a new website/blog/server space up and running
  7. working with some part-time faculty with their first times teaching online

You know…the regular list of entirely too much to do. Stay tuned…

  1. Hi Shelley!
    I have peered into your blog, I hope you don’t mind?
    Big-time congrats to you and your partner, about the engagement and wedding!

    I really won’t make a pest of myself, since you and I have no classes as student/teacher.
    Only occasionally, will I comment on your blog. I, myself, will [as ususal!] be busy with my own classes!

    All the best to ya!
