Olgy Gary's insight:

Excellent concept map! Check out how Pamela Lloyd describes it :-)

Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

An excellent overview of learning theories, providing not just a synopsis of each, but the connections of each to the principles researchers behind each and the general field of study. The overlapping and interconnecting nature of the ideas is also suggested by the network of lines between the summaries and the people. Another useful feature are links from the pedagogical theory titles and researcher names to the Wikipedia articles for each.

5 Qualitative Approaches described by Creswell set in a Quiz Show Game template

5 Qualitative Approaches described by Creswell set in a Quiz Show Game template | Higher Education Topics & Resources | Scoop.it

Check.It.Out! Look at what I put together to distinguish the five qualitative approaches to research that Creswell (2013) described in his book. I had NO IDEA PowerPoint presentations could be this interactive! It's all about hyper linkingbetween the slides and I'm so impressed with the result. Almost 40 pgs summarized in one presentation that's fun to navigate thru. You can download the presentation and edit it to your heart's delight so you can use the template for other topics/subjects if you want. 

Creswell, J. W. (2013). Qualitative inquiry and research design: Choosing among five approaches (3rd ed.). Los Angeles, CA: Sage.

Olgy Gary's insight:

I'd love to take credit for this but the content is all Creswell's and the platform is all due to PowerPoint's hyperlinking features. :-)

A Tenure Track for Teachers?

One of my doctoral students just got a tenure-track assistant professorship. That’s excellent for her, but a decade ago, it wouldn’t have rated mention in a newspaper column. Of course, that was before the amount of tenure-track openings dropped like a barometer during hurricane season. Today, getting a tenure-track position feels more like a "Man Bites Dog" event. - See more at: https://chroniclevitae.com/news/1823-a-tenure-track-for-teachers?cid=VTEVPMSED1#sthash.ls0lLXBi.dpuf

If I don’t control myself (and I have to be quite strict about this), I can easily spend hours down the rabbit hole of Twitter and Facebook, or the depths of the internet. Distractions come easy to me, sad as this may sound. However, there are a few things I do purposefully to be able to focus. I am going to share these in this post. But first, a bit of background."
