1. Schedule a session in my campuses center for Advancement of Learning (DCAL - our teaching and learning center) on flipped classes and course development by teams.
2. Invite faculty, librarians, learning designers, and other folks to participate.
3. Send out the link to the e-Literate TV episode as “homework”. Explain that we are “flipping” the session, and that we will discuss the video during our face-to-face time together.
4. Perhaps utilize the discussion feature in Canvas to have the participants react to the video prior to coming to the session.
5. Use those reactions in Canvas to help guide the face-to-face discuss.
Until Florida can fill the position, W. Andrew McCollough, associate provost for teaching and technology, will lead UF Online. He said Phillips has chosen to return to ASU as a faculty member.
"She, in discussing the matter with me, had evinced after she had gotten herself immersed in the management of and the directing of UF Online that her first love at this point was functioning as a faculty member and doing research on online learning," McCollough said. "It became evident to her that she would have difficulties fitting that preference into her waking hours here at the university."
Janine Sikes, assistant vice president for media relations and public affairs at Florida, said Phillips will "pursue research into effective systems for personalized and adaptive learning" at ASU.
What will universities do in the future to monetize their value? I offer the image below – instead of monetizing learning, content, and teaching, universities in the future will monetize assessment and the process of filling learner knowledge gaps. Content is largely free/open. Teaching is becoming more free/open. If something can be duplicated with only limited additional expense, it cannot serve as a value point for higher education. Creating personalized and adaptive learning processes that account for the personal knowledge graph of a learner is, and likely will continue, to be a source of value economically for universities.
Walter George Bruhl Jr. of Newark and Dewey Beach is a dead person; he is no more; he is bereft of life; he is deceased; he has rung down the curtain and gone to join the choir invisible; he has expired and gone to meet his maker.
He drifted off this mortal coil Sunday, March 9, 2014, in Punta Gorda, Fla. His spirit was released from his worn-out shell of a body and is now exploring the universe. [snip]
There will be no viewing since his wife refuses to honor his request to have him standing in the corner of the room with a glass of Jack Daniels in his hand so he would appear natural to visitors.
Cremation will take place at the family's convenience, and his ashes will be kept in an urn until they get tired of having it around. What’s a Grecian Urn? Oh, about 200 drachmas a week."
When former provost Betty Capaldi Phillips agreed to come back to the University of Florida to direct the startup of the state’s first fully online four-year bachelor’s degree program, it was met with much fanfare.
She had built a reputation as vice chancellor of the State University of New York system and as provost of Arizona State University, helping to launch ASU’s own, nationally acclaimed online program.
But less than three months after she officially began as director of UF Online on Jan. 1, Phillips -- the wife of former UF Senior Vice President and COO Win Phillips — is no longer in charge of that program.
In an administrative memo sent out to faculty after 9 p.m. Tuesday, UF Provost Joe Glover didn’t even mention Betty Capaldi Phillips by name.
“Due to changes in personnel, effective immediately, Associate Provost Andy McCollough will become responsible for the administration of UF Online. Consequently, issues related to this program should be directed to his attention,” Glover’s memo said.
Phil Hill: So, tell me a little bit about the change from your perspective of what you used to teach—how your method used to be of teaching—and then getting into this flipped classroom method, particularly with working with a team for design. How did that change things?
Vanessa Perry: Well, you're right, it's one of those things that does sound good on paper. And so, I'd heard that it was really easy and "All you've got to do is take the stuff that you have in your PowerPoints and they're just going to record it.
It'll be fine; it will be very much like what you have always done." Well that is so absolutely not the case. It's nothing like what we've always done.
