Some Thoughts on Literary Nonfiction

By Oronte. Do you know the site Essay Daily, edited by Ander Monson and Craig Reinbold? It's a valuable platform for conversation about essays and essayists, and a few weeks back Craig asked if I'd like to write something about Crux, the new literary nonfiction book series at University of Georgia Press, for which I serve as series editor.

Digitally Divided

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/library_babel_fish_blog_header.jpg?itok=qNL3hM7KBy Barbara Fister. There’s nothing like being without the internet for a few days to realize how much I don’t miss it, at least occasionally. But it also makes me realize how much I assume when I have regular access.

Education, Ideation and Dreams at #JiscCreativity

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. “No agenda, no presentations, just a few primers...bring people together to talk about what is possible, what the trends are and see if there are any potential projects in amongst the ideas.” That was the description of the Jisc Creativity Workshop that I attended last week. Knowing that Jisc is about all things digital in UK higher education, I went up to Birmingham with a sense of curiosity and hoped for an interesting experience. Read more...

The Invisible Learners Taking MOOCs

By George Veletsianos. “Anyone, anywhere, at any point in time will be able to take advantage of high quality education.
That could be a tagline from just about any enthusiast or provider of open online courses (often called MOOCs). The intention certainly seems laudable and, if not transformational, at least desirable. Read more...

The Duggars, Age and Responsibility

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Susan O'Doherty. Josh Duggar did terrible things, and he needs to be held accountable for them. But (and I can't believe I'm typing these words) I agree with Mike Huckabee that he doesn't deserve to be drawn and quartered for crimes committed before his brain was fully developed. Read more...

Move Over Stork

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Laura Tropp. I’ve been reading with interest about the depopulation problem in Denmark and the ways different groups have been trying to tackle it. From a marketing perspective, there’s a travel agency using the crisis as an opportunity to encourage people to “Do it For Denmark” and use their holiday as a sex-cation. Read more...

Math Geek Mom: Go Cavs!

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/mama_phd_blog_header.jpg?itok=C5xGPD1aBy Rosemarie Emanuele. Economics sometimes talks about markets as being similar to auctions. People decide on a “reservation price,” how much they are willing to pay for a product, and “bid” on it by either trying to buy the product or not buying it. This process continues until an equilibrium price, sometimes described as “Walrasian,” is reached. Read more...

Help! My Spouse Is Being Abducted by Grad School!

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/Screen%20Shot%202011-12-12%20at%2012.29.48%20PM.png?itok=ITDqfJNPBy Lindsay Oden. Every graduate student is undoubtedly accustomed to having to explain the process of grad school to people who are unfamiliar with academia. Whether dealing with family members, friends, dying house plants, or prospective partners, common themes become apparent to grad students: most people simply do not understand what grad school is, what grad students’ objectives are, or the kinds of stresses that grad students routinely encounter.

Engagement and Experiential Learning

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/provost.jpg?itok=k-3W3N__By Herman Berliner. If I look at the major changes in higher education in recent years, the increase in student engagement and experiential learning are two of the most significant. I recognize that changes in the use of technology to further facilitate learning are also very significant but I think that engagement and experiential learning may be even more impactful.
