Recap: Ask Me Anything – A Supportive CPED Crowdsourced Webinar

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with a group of CPED colleagues to provide support and suggestions for EdD programs that have transitioned to remote instruction. The sea of advice we are swimming in can be overwhelming, so it was nice to have the opportunity to connect with a small and focused group of EdD colleagues dealing with similar challenges.

I’ve embedded my slides below and will list a few quick links links here as follow ups to the discussion (there are also some embedded links in the slides.) CPED members will be able to view an archive of the webinar on the CPED website.

Finally, I want to give a shout out to my former MSU colleague Dr. William Cain who attended the webinar (what a nice surprise!) and I think you need to host the next one William! Dr. Cain has done some spectacular work on syncromodal classes – you can check out his Google Scholar profile here: 

As a community we are going to continue to work through these challenges and we are so lucky to have CPED to connect and support our efforts. It was great connecting with everyone today and please don’t hesitate to reach out (and continue to share your challenges and successes.) My slides are below and the session can be found here:

#GastaGoesGlobal – a gasta reflection

Less than a month ago (which certainly feels like a year ago) Tom Farrelly contacted me asking if I would take the risk to jump in and participate in a virtual Gasta session.  Gasta means quick or speedy in Irish – each presenter at a Gasta has 5 minutes to speak and they’re counted “on stage” in Irish. I of course was delighted and honored to be asked, and appreciated the chance to funnel some energy into this collaborative community event. The theme for the Gasta was “What Will (Online) Education Look Like.”

On Tuesday, April 14th, I was joined by six other incredible gastateers. Despite the distance, there was a great feeling of community – in the Zoom room, and, in the many associated backchannels, which certainly made me feel like I wasn’t “just” talking into the webcam alone.  Tom and his team did an incredible job orchestrating the event and I hope you enjoy jumping through all of the sessions! So, without further ado…here is my Gasta, titled Leigh Graves Wolf: Sometimes I Live in the Computer. 

1 = a haon (ah hain)
2 = a dó (ah dough)
3 = a trí (ah tree)
4 = a ceathair (ah cah-her)
5 = a cúig (ah coo-ig)
