@jhlee Yeah, it’s unfortunate. I’m used to it because I’ve experienced it for over 20 years but still...I thought we’d have moved past it by now.

@bstacey Sigh. I often don’t go to philosophy conferences and then when I do I wonder if they’ll be better. Sometimes the presentations aren’t like that. But too many still are.

It’s telling that those that are about teaching, at the philosophy conferences, tend to be much better presentation-wise!

Philosophy conference: let me sit and read my paper to you. Maybe I’ll have some slides with most of the text of my paper on them, so small you can’t possibly see it from the back. There won’t be mics in all the rooms so not everyone will be able to hear me or the questions.

Conferences on teaching & learning: [aghast sideways looks]

Me, attending one of each over past few days: moar teaching & learning, please!

I've also blogged today about the history of the term Open Science (a first in what probably will end up as a short series): chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2019

This was a really useful read to reflect on how to go about fostering self-determined pedagogy. Also @chendricks gets a shoutout.

Nice! a guide on Open Education working groups at higher edu institutions. A work in progress from BCcampus (British Columbia, Canada). Comment using hypothes.is!

hey all -- The Center for Open Science is seeking graduate students, post docs, researchers and academic faculty to participate in survey to investigate the factors that affect the perceived credibility and use of preprints.

It's 20min & you don't need to have posted a preprint in the past to take it: virginia.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe.

It's passed IRB also -- IRB Protocol Number: 2192.

Thanks & feel free to pass this on to interested parties!

2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages - here's how you can get involved from @superlinguo t.co/51fV3jmclt #linguistics

Anyone know any good OER, open ed. resources, for college English comp? I'm pushing for my department to ditch overpriced textbooks & replacing them with free, trustworthy online items.

A project that started as a Digital Humanities project, transfered with the Principal Investigator to various institutions, and has now been copyrighted and monetized under the PI's for profit company. A good example of why understanding Free Culture as a social movement is relevant to Digital Humanities.

Federated microblogging for academics

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"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
