Name is Slow (not real name or is it?).
Second semester English literature and linguistic student at the university of Luxembourg (uni.lu).
Not much attracted by social medias in general, however, the concept of this platform is rather appealing.
Hope you guys can help me sometimes with assessments or give me feedback on stuff which is related to academics. ;)
Oh, and yeah, large Neil Gaiman advocate. Sooo, be ready for toots filled with nerdy fantasy stuff.
I went from Jaiku to Twitter to here.
#Introductions. Not sure what I've signed up for here but jumping in! Looking for online community with reflective, curious folks. I am a mother of two young children, wife, brain injury rehabilitation specialist, speech-language pathologist, meditation instructor, mindfulness educator, business owner and amateur violinist. A fellow orchestral musician turned me on to this group and I am looking forward to learning how to engage with it/you all.
I teach personality assessment, clinical skills and psychodynamic therapy at the Department of Psychology, University of Oslo.
I teach history at Normandale Community College. I'm teach digital history in my survey courses and am looking for places to foster creative discussions for my students.

Hi just a reminder that https://scholar.social exists explicitly in order to be a safe space for queers and other minorities in academia
We take it to be a founding principle of this instance that academic freedom can only exist where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic
Abuse, "debates" over minority rights conducted in bad faith, hate speech, etc. are all not tolerated here

Here's a much-overdue introduction!
Since Jan 2014, I've also been pursuing a PhD in #scicomm, from UWE Bristol (remote, part-time -- a hell of a combination that I do not wish upon anyone).
I love learning (about) programming.
#Introductions. I'm a central administrator in a large school district. Previously, I was lucky enough to be the principal of middle school and a teacher.
I'm interested in how technology can be used in education. Not just the promise, but the real world implications.
#Introductions Hi, All. I first joined mastodon.social and now I'm exploring this instance. I'm a lawyer by day, but my academic interest is in artificial intelligence and the legal issues that arise out of its use. I publish a podcast on this issue at johnwright.ai and the latest episode is on AI in Advancement in Higher Ed. I've been asked to teach a course on trademarks at a law school as part of a certificate program, but I am also looking for advice on finding more opportunities to teach.
