Hello, Universe, again

Yesterday I ran into a colleague with whom I had been commiserating about My U's old-fashioned and snobby attitudes about distance learning. Looks like My U is loosening up and this colleague wants me to teach a course this summer--at full pay--to "test the waters."

Best part: I have the course ready because I put it forward last summer, and it got shot down. But not for the course's content--because distance learning "is too University of Phoenix" for some folks. Yah, we aren't exactly the Harvard of the Southwest, either. And distance learning can be a challenging and provocative way to teach students using new pedagogies.

So there!

But again, Hello, Universe!

  1. I teach online regularly, and I love it. For me, it means that students are writing ALL the time, and that's wonderful.
