I find the concept of introductions very intimidating. It will probably take me a few days before I post a full one.
Until then, hello there. I will probably post intermittently and/or vent about #teaching #higherED, #diversity, #equity, #inclusion, and #intersectional issues in #STEM, as well as #interdisciplinary and pop-culture cross-over and slice of life things.
But I'm really not completely sure at this point. I guess we will find out.
@GIMcGrew Hi welcome! :)
@GIMcGrew Welcome! Puzzle Shark is cute.
@GIMcGrew Seems like a good introduction to me. And I'm sure we'll figure out some part of who you are as you continue to post. Welcome to the instance!
@GIMcGrew Hey! I like what you stand for and look forward to seeing more cool stuff from you

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
