Open Door

Entry 064 for Tuesday June 16, 2020

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Today’s #LinuxTips video on Spotify was recorded last week and auto-scheduled for release; #educoffee with Pablo; meeting with Diego and Jorge about server setup for VM support for our Cybersecurity masters courses; a great meeting with my student Alex about life; participated on a panel with a selection of educators via an invitation from Jon to talk about learning and teaching going forward, our panel is listed on the page as “Identifying and Embracing Best Practices“; interviewed by Tim for an upcoming episode of the Praxis Pedagogy Podcast; attended an online “open house” for incoming PrepaTec students for August (our second child starts his high school); a meeting with a student, Adrián, talking about feedback from other professors.
  2. What did you enjoy? Both sessions, that panel from 3pm-4pm and then a wonderful hour long discussion with Tim (or I thought so, we’ll see how the audio comes out) went very well. I was hesitant joining the panel.
  3. What did you find difficult? I hesitated before agreeing to join that panel. There are some hard feelings from interactions over the past few years with FLGI in my role as chair of the board of FLN but I have always taken the open stance of being open to collaboration and continued that stance with this.
  4. What has changed? I do hope this leads to more open and transparent work going forward between the people involved with FLGI and the FLN. The FLN door has always been open for anyone and that has been the focus of my role as chair of the board. Perhaps my Open bias shows often, but I truly believe the mission of the FLN is to be open and inviting.
