What the publishers need to realize, and it seems they may be, is this is similar to what technology and immediate access via the Internet has done in the fields of music, TV, and movies. I'm proud to be employed by a University that recognizes the importance of OER's to not only reduce financial burden on our learners but also support the need for up to date and relevant materials. As an instructional designer, I encourage the subject matter experts I work with to utilize industry publications and research OERs. Not only does this reduce the learner's cost, it generates a vast array of knowledge from more than one or two authors. Transference of new knowledge is enhanced when learners are offered varying insights.

Are You Ready for It?
Courtesy of Rambling On: Music & More There have been a few articles in the field of instructional design lately that say we do not really need instructional designers. Instructional designers read  these headlines and automatically begin to huff and puff. ...

Story
Tagline
Seeker of truth. Champion for ALL students. Researcher. Instructional Designer. Grandmother, Mother, Friend.
Introduction
At the end of the day, I do it all for them: my students, your students; my family, your family; my friends, your friends. I do not believe positive change happens with conformity nor do I believe there is any simple solution to the issues we deal with in our world today. 

I adhere to the rules, when they are fair. But, I always have one "toe" on the line; think of it as "rebel with a cause".  If I question the rules, it only means I want to know why  and who it benefits. 

I refuse to acknowledge a leader who is not willing to walk by their follower's side. 

There is no "hidden" agenda - just honesty and truth seeking; as it benefits those who cannot or may not seek it for themselves.

I do not judge anyone based on their beliefs, their past, their "cover". I embrace and respect those who express their individuality and remain true to who they truly are...I only ask for the same in return. 

Favorite Quotes:
  • “To be one's self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity.” ~Irving Wallace
  • “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~Emerson
  • “Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.” ~Tom Krause
  • It is better to hate me for who I am than love me for who I am not. - Anon
  • A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives. - Albert Schweitzer
And last but not least:
  • “If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.” ~Winnie the Pooh
  • “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” ~Dr. Seuss
