My new blog about Online Teaching and Learning
by Mark Sivy
Now that I’ve completed my doctoral degree requirements, it’s time to switch gears and combine my recently acquired knowledge, research skills, and theoretical perspectives with my practical experience in educational technology, online teaching, e-learning, and educational leadership. I have a lot of ideas on how to proceed and developing this online teaching and learning blog will help pull my collective thoughts together.
I have many curiosities and research interests, so I decided to work on the following blogs as well:
- Virtual School News (http://virtualschoolnews.wordpress.com/) – the latest about online education programs and virtual schools.
- Virtual School Ecosystems (http://virtualschoolecosystems.wordpress.com/) – addresses the inner workings, external community, and cross-functional operation of a virtual school
- Virtual School Leadership (http://virtualschoolleadership.wordpress.com/) – information for current and future virtual school leaders and leader development programs.
- The Virtual Organization (http://thevirtualorganization.wordpress.com/) – information and perspectives on virtual enterprise operations and virtual leadership.
After the introductory posts for these blogs are completed, each blog will take on its respective personality and will set sail in a unique direction. The destinations are many, with several already being charted, while others are to be determined by the winds of progress and innovation. So now onward with these journeys…
Reflection Point – I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking. ~ First stanza of Sea Fever by John Masefield
