I feel like I shouldn't be surprised. When I finished 5th grade, I regarded how quickly elementary school went. When I finished 8th grade I said "Wow, middle school just flew by." When senior year in high school came around I felt like I had just begun. It happens every time and it's happening again. I recently completely the first semester of my senior year, and am anticipating the start and end of the next one.
It will feel completely surreal when I'm in Yankee Stadium getting my… Continue

DENVER — Warning that higher education is facing a funding crisis next year, Gov. Bill Ritter named businessman Dick Monfort and attorney Jim Lyons on Thursday to chair a new committee and come up with a roadmap for the future of Colorado's 27 public colleges and universities.
"It really is about writing the future of education in this state and higher education in this state. It really is about a master plan," Ritter told college presidents and education leaders at a summit at the… Continue

CU has not unionized its adjuncts (although there was an attempt a few years ago), Metro State did. As a temp (one semester) I was not eligible to join union which was apparently open only to permanent faculty. Because of the contract, Metro did not require us to have office hours nor were we recipients of benefits (we were required to contribute to the state retirement fund).
CU, without a union, offers us the same level of benefits as any other part timer with the exception of… Continue

Before a class even begins, we have ideas about what it will be like based on the subject matter, what we know about the professor (whether or not we've taken a class with him or her before), and with whom we are taking the class. This semester, I took two Graduate-level English classes. I had taken two classes with one of the professors before, but the other professor I only knew of through a friend. I was excited for the one class but not so much for the other.
Throughout the semester, I… Continue

Since I found out how easy it is to add graphics, I'll show a couple of other tools - and these are a preview of the upcoming iPhone version; they work exactly the same on a computer.
The first is based on Flander's Analysis research and is useful in observing any classroom. These are the components of good teaching in most situations. You need to gather data for the entire class or lesson in elementary for this tool to be useful.…

Copenhagen needs one country, small or large, to eliminate fossil fuel usage with 5 years .... sending a message to the other 238 countries. Japan has a protype for electromagnetic propulsion ... eliminating fossil fuels on the high seas by fitting their entire merchant marine .. so why is Japan lagging ..instead of leading? The US should be eliminating fossil fuel driven cars, buses and trucks ....140 years of oil dependence continues.

Next week I'll be going into a graduate class at Willamette University to observe a Supervision and Evaluation faculty member and students. When I offered to use the eCOVE Observation Software to gather data on student performance as they present synopsis of textbook chapters it was welcomed with open arms. I'm going to also gather data on teacher talk/student talk.
I'll begin by talking about what data I'll be collecting and how it will be used. I will be sending the data directly… Continue

I'm a technology geek.
There, I said it.
In the last twelve months I've been teaching a few online classes. Like many instructors, I am fairly new to teaching online classes. Fortunately, I am not new to the medium. Not only did I complete my degree through a distance-learning program, but I have taken many professional development classes specifically focused on best practices in online instructional development. And I am currently studying for my masters in Instructional… Continue

Academic libraries are even more important than ever to campus life. They serve not just as a place for research, but also as a place for learning. As all educators know a tremendous amount of learning takes place outside of the classroom. Students and faculty alike are meeting in the library or using its resources from home.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a contemporary video displaying/discussing management & discipline issues? The ones I like best are 20+ years old and way too cookbooky, e.g. Lee Canter.

How do y'all keep teaching secondary methods fresh for yourselves? I'm finding very little new. The brain-based stuff confirmed good methodology ad does the resarch as does the research synthesis of Rob. Marzano.

The first day of my intensive playwrights class, my professorm- who has a ridiculous resume of achievements- came bounding class, introduced himself and asked us to call him Bob. Not Professor, not even Robert…but Bob. It was interesting to see something as simple as referring to a teacher by their real name created a different atmosphere in the classroom almost immediately. It allowed the students to relate on the same level as him, and to not to feel that this professor- who has done all… Continue
