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

The kinetic project was also the metal project in with students cut, formed and assembled metal. They were given a number of options--simple kinetic movement , wearable and or inter active. I finding although I feel it should be open , I may need to limit the directions and hold students to expressing meaning through the movement and not allow movement that is only about design/mobiles. Also perhaps for an exercise make some simple mechanical movements with wire, which have to be activated by a… Continue

With somewhere on the order of 60% of the current energy sector workforce slated to retire over the next hand full of years what programs are you aware of to educate the next generation of energy sector workers.
I am not only talking about alternative/renewable energy jobs, but the necessary power engineers, nuclear engineers, fossil plant operations and maintenance personnel, power line workers, etc.

As many of us in higher education progress through our careers, we continue to share our knowledge and master our respective areas of expertise. In a guided effort to do so, here is my two cents:
Publishing is one of the more traditional ways to spread our knowledge. Authoring is likely the single most important role we undertake when we become part of higher education. Highlighting our expertise not only to our students, but to other educators, as well as, the general public is our… Continue

So, next we explored mixed media/materials and objects for sculpture. Often this sort of project in sculpture gets referred to as found object. While this maybe appropriate for some situations… setting up a situation where you use the things you find, usually some restrictions, things found along a mile of road, often it is more a matter of selection of materials. This is more what I'm trying to get the students to do: think about the qualities of a material/object, physical, cultural,… Continue

Currently the university, which the community college I teach at transfers students to, is revamping their foundations program. They are trying to keep current and deal with ideas and practices and have less technique based approach, courses like drawing and 3d are now mapping and space. In order to have our transfers get equal experiences and keep the experiences the class (3D) is required to have for transfer to other schools as well, I have adjusted my projects to include exercises that give… Continue

Online teaching was the perfect part-time job for me.
E-learning and online teaching replaced coaching and after school clubs as a way to supplement my income. I loved it! I was working with great teachers from around the world and learning new things everyday. I also realized I was opening a door to a new career. Eventually, after 25 years in a traditional classroom, I decided to take early retirement, and pursue my passion for online… Continue

While many higher-education institutions have been affiliated with particular religions since their founding, there has been a broad movement in recent years to accommodate religious diversity by enlisting additional chaplains to serve different faith groups, such as Muslims, Jews, Hindus and various Christian denominations that might not have been present at institutions' foundings.
Now an organization of non-religious students at… Continue
