  • Wikipedia:Too long; didn’t read – don't often bookmark Wikipedia, but this entry is a valuable reminder. "A common mis-citation of this essay is to ignore the reasoned and actually quite clear arguments and requests for response presented by an unnecessarily wordy editor with a flippant "TL;DR" in an attempt to discredit and refuse to address their strongly-presented ideas and/or their criticism of one's own position. This is a four-fold fallacy: ad hominem, appeal to ridicule, thought-terminating cliché, and simple failure to actually engage in the debate because one is supposedly too pressed for time to bother, the inverted version of proof by verbosity." – (erhetoric sarcasim )
  • The biggest lesson from the flipped classroom – At least one substantive observation about flipping classrooms: it ain't about just getting by. "it rejects the notion that college is about just barely getting by in the nick of time, and instead it promotes a personal model of staying on top of things and getting things done. This is  a form of self-regulated learning and something university students must absolutely master at some point, sooner rather than later."

    But I wonder if this can be addressed simply by teaching students time management. – (flippedcourse de )

  • How to Save College | The Awl – Shirky weighs in: “MOOCs matter. Not because distance learning is some big new thing or because online lectures are a solution to all our problems, but because they’ve come along at a time when students and parents are willing to ask themselves, “Isn’t there some other way to do this?” MOOCs are a lightning strike on a rotten tree. Most stories have focused on the lightning, on MOOCs as the flashy new thing. I want to talk about the tree.” – (moocs de )

  • Warnings from the Trenches | AAUP – "Please do not blame those of us in public schools for how unprepared for higher education the students arriving at your institutions are. We have very little say in what is happening to public education. Even the most distinguished and honored among us have trouble getting our voices heard in the discussion about educational policy – (de education postsecondary unprepared )
