A “Revisited” blog post indicates that I reread the original and used AI-assisted tools (e.g., Grammarly) to improve grammar and word choice.

A common theme I’ve encountered in several meetings and informal conversations with faculty, staff, students, trustees, and alumni is a growing awareness of the rapidity of change in higher education—in how we teach, in how we learn, in from whom we know, in where we learn, and even in what times of the day and night we learn! These concerns are addressed well by the new learning avenues explored by the shared online learning insights of Debbie Morrison on the distinction between the creation of personal learning experiences (PLEs) and personal learning networks (PLNs). I am also increasingly influenced by the “learning flow” concept advanced by Jane Hart.
Even as I proctor an exam while writing this blog post, I am learning online—checking my Twitter account, especially for posts by
- Julie Lindsay,
- Jane Hart,
- Michael Sheehan,
- Michelle Pacansky-Brock,
- Richard Byrne,
- the GlobalChronicle,
- the NYTimesLearningNetwork,
- Silvia Tolisano.
Thank you, fellow educators, worldwide, for all you share and how you teach and inspire me. Teaching and learning clearly are not constrained to the classroom.
