Updating my resume

Nothing to see here. That sure is a shame. 10/28 update: I don't know when I stopped having my resume on my website. I know it's in LinkedIn... but it is time to have it back here. For my coworkers, managers, and team: I don't want to leave UAF eLearning. I do want to do more. It's time to update my resume, and that means sprucing up my website, adding new posts, doing a general culling of fluff. Notes on what to include Program management People management…

Fun with banners

Joanne Healy, School of Education, likes the banners I make. Here's the latest batch... her requests are fairly open-ended, so I can find the right mood to fit the need. Our department has access to a Shutterstock account. That and regular CC0 images make creating banners easier.

Working with Adobe Illustrator

Hey all! I've been slack over the past few years in learning Adobe Illustrator. I LOVED Fireworks... WHY, OH WHY.... anyhow. Over the past few months, I have recreated graphics for the Mining Mill Operator Training. Granted I've only done a drop in the bucket of them, but my AI skills are coming along. Here are a few P & ID Information [image 140-1-11] Control Loops [image 140-1-05] Pneumatic instruments [140-1-06] Process Variables [image 140-1-01] Electronic Instruments [image 140-1-07] Analog Signals [image 140-1-09] Digital Display [image 140-1-10]…

It's hot in Fairbanks. Hotter than I remember in a long time. It reminds me that our ocean has increased one degree each decade over the past three decades (at least that's what I remember). Climate change is real. Here's an older article that has punch in terms of what's happening world wide. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-point-of-no-return-climate-change-nightmares-are-already-here-20150805

Guide students through your course

Guide students through your course verbally and visually. Whether your discipline is highly visual or not, using a picture to show the student where they are in the course or semester is helpful. You might want to use a quick video to show students how to navigate your course shell. If that’s not in the works consider providing a course calendar and course map. Both have value. Calendars are fairly easy to create while adding a course map can show how assignments flow from the topics you are delving into. Take a moment to grab pen and paper, crayons, your laptop or whatever tools are at hand. Ask yourself what visual maps you use most. Use one of them as a template for what you build and deliver to your students.
