What does the coronavirus mean for colleges and universities? How did campuses handle this public safety emergency? I’ve been researching how the pandemic impacts higher education since COVID first appeared in Hubei province. Part of my work reverses that equation, asking the question: how do campuses impact their communities through their handling of the virus? This month the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published a devastating answer. They
I tend to use keyboard shortcuts whenever I can at work or on a computer – I find it easier to do that than hunt for the mouse cursor and move it to the mute/unmute button. I thought I’d share some useful kayboard shortcuts I use everyday, and not just Teams ones either. Note – I’m using a Mac keyboard and will include the most common shortcuts I use, and
MSU staff, faculty, and students may be familiar with the MS Cortana “daily briefings” and regular MS MyAnalytics updates that are sent to their MSU email inbox. Cortana and MyAnalytics are being deactivated at an administrative level on Saturday, January 30, and MSU staff and faculty will be set to automatically opt out of these services.

Seven years ago (!) I was invited to join the founding team of the #BYOD4L team – ‘Bring Your Own Device for Learning’. An experiment in social learning, something to engage the mind after the Christmas closedown, and a way to further our understadning of how we can use our personal computers (desktop, laptop, phone, or tablet) for our own learning.

In October I gave a talk (online, of course) about climate change and the future of higher education. EDUCAUSE hosted the event; accordingly, my focus was on campus information technology. I appreciated the chance to try out my most recent thinking on the topic. There was some very good discussion. Now a French journal, Numérique responsable (Responsible Computing) published an article about the presentation. Which let me crack my knuckles
While members of the Duke community demonstrated adaptability and empathy during 2020, the challenges and stressors of the COVID-19 pandemic have negatively affected the well-being of instructors, students and staff at institutions of higher learning across the U.S. — to say the least. This blog addresses challenges related to how instructors can be flexible and supportive, while actively thinking about their own well-being when designing courses. Professor Ada Palmer of the
There’s no doubt that the world looks far different today than it did just a year ago. For so many of us, the outbreak of COVID-19 has dramatically changed the way we live our daily lives. Now, more than ever, we’re using the internet not just for communication or for entertainment. We’re relying on it to help us survive and grow, from working at home to learning at home.
As part of the efforts to link and connect people virutall during these lockdown and home-working times, I’ve been inolved in a new initiative to link parents together.
