Here are my reflections on a faculty learning community that I facilitated a couple of years ago. I enjoyed learning about #blendedlearning  with a great group of colleagues: +Kevin Bolding +Baine Craft +Kristina Gritter +Geri Mason and Erla Champ Gibson.  This presentation was shared at #et4online  in Dallas.  
A faculty learning community (FLC) comprised of six professors representing different disciplines was formed in 2011 to study, develop, and teach blended learning courses. As part of this project, ...

Microsoft announced Office for iPad today which could be good news if your organization already has the right Office 365 subscription or if you are already paying $99 a year for Office 365 Home Premium. Otherwise, you can only view or present documents, no creating or editing. Unless I am misunderstanding how this works I will continue to do most document creation and editing with Google Drive so that I can freely switch between my phone, tablet, and laptop when collaborating with others.

Hey there, +David Wicks. I rarely need this type of app and it's mainly because of Google as you've described. I bought the relatively cheap DocsToGo early on, which met my Office needs, but now it's mostly Google.  #GAFE

I am using Google Hangouts tonight to have drop-in office hours.  I emailed the URL for the hangout to students and posted it in the LMS. Students can join the hangout, ask a question and sign off when finished. I am not recording this since there will be lots of dead air. I need an "I'll be right back" as I need to take a  few short breaks.

Does classroom furniture choices and placement tell others what kind of teacher you are? #learningspaces

Happy 30th Birthday Macintosh! My first experience with you was as a student teachers in 1986. One of my mentor teacher just got a lab of 10 Macs and didn't have time to figure out how to use them so I got to teach Computer Applications instead of Algebra II, That was it. I was hooked and I've been teaching people how to use technology ever since.

Introduction

I have been active in the instructional technology world for over 20 years. My previous positions include: high school teacher, university lecturer, school district technology facilitator, multimedia author, and project manager for an educational technology company.

My current position is Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education at Seattle Pacific University. My current task is exploring the possibility of creating a masters degree in digital teaching and learning. My most recent previous position was Director of Instructional Technology at SPU. As Director, I regularly consulted with faculty on effective uses of technology. I have been involved in the development of numerous online and blended courses. In addition, I have taught face-to-face, blended, and online courses in the School of Education for over ten years.

Recent projects include: developing a Web 2.0 electronic portfolio system based on WordPress, creating a feature-comparison matrix for lecture capture solutions, and leading SPU’s iTunes U project. I have facilitated faculty learning communities on topics such as learning spaces, active learning, blended learning, and mobile learning.

I am an Associate Editor for MERLOT’s Teacher Education Editorial Board. I served as program chair for the 2013 International Symposium for Emerging Technologies in Online Learning, and will be the conference chair for the 2014 conference.
