|How I Make My Learning Visible|
It's hard to pay attention. You sort of have to give and take. You know, like the economy? It goes up and down, but it hopefully is always focused.
|1.2 Media (Infotention)|
The best way to attend to contemporary issues is to discuss them with people. The play and debate between two disparate perspectives brings about enlightenment.
|2.1 Open Access|
I do this because it's a way to connect with the academic discourse community.
I do (and prefer) this because it connects me with people most affected by higher education political economies.

I took a seminar with a digital media scholar about how text is transformed through the process of electronic exploration.

|4.1 Public Discourse|
|4.2 Academic Discourse|
I'm not always a fan of academic discourse because it's often convoluted. But, I do write some "academic" stuff. I have a chapter coming out in a forthcoming edited collection about social media and the ethics of the classroom.
I brainstorm while watching Conan. Doesn't everyone?
I collaborate with colleagues all around the world on projects. We hope to critical advance our society and change the world.
|5.2 Coffee Discussions|
I usually meet with a few colleagues and professors a few times a month to just talk. We talk about what we know, what we don't know, and what we want to learn. We interact as if we were all ignorant nomads.
