We have 2 to 3 feet of snow on the roof of our house already. Supposed to get 6 to 9 inches of heavy, wet snow tonight. Hoping the roof doesn't collapse!

I'm hiring someone to work with me in the new lab we're creating Plymouth State University (NH) to support engaged pedagogies! Please share this listing with your best instructional designers & pedagogues, esp. those with passion for interdisciplinarity & open education!

The more I collaborate with sociologists and anthropologists, the more interesting my paper titles become.

I really hate when I have some technical/programming based thing I want to do, but don't really know how to do. I keep putting it off because I can't find the time it will take me to learn how to do the thing.

Just finished cleaning 7 inches of snow off the driveway. Now they're predicting another 9+ inches for tonight through tomorrow.

Another day of schools closed for the kids. That's 5 of the last 6 days now...

From the last page of a book I recently finished:

"…the funny thing is I've got tenure now after all these years. It doesn't matter what happens to my job; I've got tenure in the only place it counts. In here." He tapped his chest.

We are supposed to hit wind chills of -60°F next week. Wonder if that's enough to cancel classes? 🤔

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 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.
