sharing the following resource for university professors or
doctoral students looking for a job:
Academic Careers Online, since 1998, is an academic job site where universities and colleges in the US, Canada, and around the globe, advertise faculty, adjunct, post doc, library, endowed chairs, and all types of administrative and senior management jobs.
There is no charge for the applicant services. You can:
(1) Search current job openings (and remember, new ones are added daily),
(2) Post your resume for employers to review, and/or
(3) Receive e-mail alerts when matching jobs are posted.
Just had short version of article published in Academic Exchange Quarterly on “The Use of Blogs as a Knowledge Management Tool.” Timothy L. Johnson (Drake University) and I share our experiences using instructor-focused, learner-focused, and community-focused blogs over the past three years as a way to teach both explicit and tacit knowledge.Both benefits and concerns of using blogs in the classroom are also addressed.
Professor Ted Panitz (Cape Cod Community College) has his students do a self-evaluation at the end of each semester. This is done separately from the teaching evaluation typically done at most universities and gives the students a chance to reflect on their own contribution to the learning process. Questions he asks include:
Have your attitudes or feelings about [subject matter] changed?
How do you feel you performed in this course?
What would you do differently if you had a chance to do this all over again?
One complaint both students and faculty have about online courses is that they can seem so impersonal. This article gives seven easy ways to change that. I liked the suggestion of having students share photos of their pets.
