Title: Big ideas, authentic assessment and technology challenges for creative course redesign
Preview: There are tremendous insights in this post. For example, your insight that many faculty focus on content, rather than what long-term outcomes are desired. We're moving from Angel/Blackboard to Moodle son and my fear is that the migration will focus on tansferring content, rather than taking advantage of the opportunity to ask the big questions, such as, "What are ways to truly engage .......

Title: Kim chee? Puh-leeze.
Preview: I loved your blog post - it is so funny, and so true. I have never seen this Kim chee person either, not that I would recognize her if I did, but like you, all the top news headlines were calling me to read about her failed 72-day marriage. I didn't read any of the articles about this Kim person, but I read your blog and got a great laugh. BTW, have you heard that Justin Bieber fathered a .......

Title: Facilitating learning as TIGERs and creativity - bis

Title: Re: Facilitating learning as TIGERs and creativity - bis
Preview: Someone I knew about 20 years ago was a kindergarten teacher and really could have used TIGERs. Her book-knowledge was great - she could talk to you about all kinds of teaching methods, and activities to build certain skills, but in the classroom she was awful.
