Social Awareness Program at MSIDT

I recently began a new consulting job with the Master’s program I got my degree from. It’s the MSIDT program at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). It wasn’t for any typical Instructional Design work which I’ve worked on (even in my side consulting jobs) but with social media skills at the center. I’ve done a lot…

Discussing Life

I noticed a ReTweet from Shannon Tipton yesterday morning where she was disagreeing with the flop part of the following blog post: What eLearning Trends Will Pop, Flop and Flip in 2015? (the link has been removed because it no longer exists anywhere I can find) Predictably, I disagree w/”Flop” – you? RT @Interactyx: Do…

Social and Learned Helplessness in Learning

Sheep Being Social

How I Got Here

Tweet Your Way to Conference Success

Tweeting on a laptop.

What are some of the things that make you a successful learner? Reflecting on what you learn should be on that list of what makes you successful.

DevLearn 2013 Logo

I’ve been hearing a lot about DevLearn these past couple of weeks. While admittedly I’m a little envious of those going, I know I’m better off making the best of what I have available.
