With remote teaching, I feel like my notifications explode! Students might email, text, call, request a Zoom meeting, message me on the CMS, send telepathic messages, etc. etc. etc.

Would scholar folks be interested in doing teach ins about our areas of specialty sometime? I'd love to learn from y'all during this Inside Time

I wrote a reflection on my MRes studies as part of the course. It might be interesting for some. It also links to the RDF, for those of you who like that kind of thing.

Just had an article accepted as is for a journal, I think. Hopefully this isn't jinxing it, and I don't get a kajillion revisions back. I preprinted it, too.

Hey, if anybody out there in the Fediverse is looking for a 2yr post-doctoral fellowship in philosophy or history of biology with my group in delightful francophone Belgium, drop me a DM or send me an e-mail! UCLouvain will be opening up a call over the summer, at which my center has been pretty successful in the past. Boost away if someone in your network might be interested! :BoostOkay:

question abt external phd directors 

so i work with black studies, indigenous & latine studies

also phenomenology and artistic research.

but my current director has suggested i find a second director that works more with black/latine phenomenology, & that'll probably be someone more USA based vs Spain.

I've no idea how to approach professors in USA abt asking them to be a director or what the protocol for that is; pay, etc. ..

any help at all?? i dont know well the bureaucracy of academia

Already dislike my decently paid job of freelance Moodle admin. So that's one thing I won't be doing again. Even more annoying than Wordpress installations.

It may already exist, but if it doesn't, there needs to be online archive of stories from academics enduring various forms of precarious labor: GAs, TAs, adjuncts, postdocs, visiting profs, etc.

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:

1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.

2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.

3. Use camel case in your hashtags.

I'm looking for to support the need for . Can anyone recommend me good introductory references? Ideally, it should explain what it is (I assume there's no single way to do it), and/or why is it needed. Thanks!

I had a presentation with my supervisory team for my MRes, and they didn't tell me it sucked, so I guess it went well.
