@dogtrax Thank you...good to return to this community. When I’m really stressed with work (or anything else) I tend to cocoon. Hopefully that will be less as the months go by. It’s been full on with work during the pandemic.
Damn, crying again. Wow.
@lauraritchie Thanks! I didn’t actually make the mitten though, I just fixed a hole in it through darning. You can see the spot where things are kind of uneven on the right of the image. That’s where I fixed the hole!
@lauraritchie it’s in our parking garage thank goodness, below our living spaces. And we were able to get it fixed enough to not be too bad, until we can get a permanent fix. But my poor partner had to spend several days dealing with this (not to mention the workers who were working on a holiday!). Stuff seems to give out at inopportune times. But fortunately we’re all good for now!
I love that the Teaching and Learning Inquiry journal has created a Distinguished Reviewer Award to acknowledge the hard work of article peer reviewers, and that they named it after Gary Poole! https://journalhosting.ucalgary.ca/index.php/TLI/GP-Reviewer-Award
I hate to ask, but here goes.
I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!
My site is https://rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯
Cool idea as a way to introduce people to open education: 5 weeks of open edu challenges...activities that take 10 minutes or less. Nice! https://oechallenge.opened.ca/about-the-open-education-challenge-series/ #OER
