Some random notes from #CanvasCon afternoon keynote by Alex Beard (Natural Born Learner) - Jobs which are least likely to be automated are those which involve creation; Practice makes perfect, but it doesn’t make new; Teaching is so esteemed in Finland that there are 10 applicants for every place.
#CanvasCon quote of the morning: how do you get students to change fixed mental models?
Take away: small incremental changes from ground up; ask and engage students.

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"
(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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
