Go Back to Your Happy Place

Originally posted 6/10/2014 As an instructional designer I help faculty with their courses. The faculty member is the content expert; I'm a support person. I want to help them make the course easy to navigate, engaging to the student--learning can be fun--and, whenever possible, inspire or remind the teacher why he or she loves doing this. This last week, in part due to recent reading, I asked a faculty member to remember his favorite assignment from when he was in school. His face lit up immediately; he…

Khan We Do It?

Originally posted 7/11/2014 I know much more about the Khan Academy {history, samples, growth} than I do peer instruction. However, I took the opportunity to sign up and log in versus just searching for one or two examples inside of the Khan Academy collection of resources. By doing so, I found that a few days later I was receiving emails that included inviting images. I pretty much felt compelled to follow the link provided in the email. Very welcoming. It was fun spending 5-10 minutes doing a…

A brand new day

Yesterday I discovered a few problems with my WordPress accounts at FatCow. Last night I did a lot of clean up and some restoration.

I think I can – OOPS!

Let’s not forget that part of knitting is unknitting. I know I did. On Saturday I made two errors… okay mid-Saturday and super late Saturday… late enough to call it Sunday. First I did a second round of increases (almost the full round) and had to pull them out (tink). Later that same day (or within a 24 hour period) I started using the wrong color. These two yarns are super close to each other. Probably too close to really be using striping. This means I’m averaging…

Where can you knit?

Wednesday – twenty minutes at the Pioneer Home while visiting my Dad. I didn’t take a photo of the knitting until Thursday (before I started knitting at a local wool shop). Things are a bit blurry time-wise because of the tinking. However, I would say ON AVERAGE I’ve gotten twenty minutes in a day. Certainly, if you count messing with passwords and working on posts/images. I really don’t want to count that. This is why I’m going to finish this post and go measure the sweater. I’m…
