I’m Still Here: ETMOOC Weeks 3 and 4 and EDCMOOC Week 3

I’m calling this a placeholder post. My teaching has taken priority as the term begins to heat up, so I haven’t been able to blog much about my #etmooc or #edcmooc reflections. I am still working through the material though, and equally important, keeping up with my blog reading.… Continue reading
