Syllabus #CLMOOC

Then I thought, hey And courses I’m teaching – person centred planning for folks with disabilities, leadership and developmental studies through the lifespan – are really exciting too.  As usual I am thoughtful about how the support of folks with disabilities, one of the most lively, joy-provoking things to do, is made dull with old scripts based on needs and lacks and deficits…    and perhaps that’s the point?  If we were to really throw ourselves into the inspiration that folks with disabilities give us – I don’t mean by this a kind of disability-porn too-easy sleaziness – the way … Continue reading Syllabus #CLMOOC

More employment related graphic recording – the Pacific Autism Family Centre

Several of my favourite things came together around creating this graphic – it’s about the idea of massively increasing supported, equitable employment for people with disabilities in British Columbia, it’s a group that’s thinking BIG ambitious thoughts about holistic supports and brought together a group of diverse interests to facilitate a discussion about partnerships and how research can lead to action, and I got to draw with Liz Etmanski, my favourite drawing partner. Last but not least, it is a project that is generated by families and I learned a lot of new things and got to change my mind about some … Continue reading More employment related graphic recording – the Pacific Autism Family Centre

#clmooc Learning and Gaming Cycle 3

Many good conversations and makings during this third cycle of #clmooc.   It got me thinking about the stone game, and then I remembered this video I made.  This was one of the first gigs* that I had, in which I was graphically recording what was happening in the room and, in this case, online as the facilitator was on an island across the strait, leading the group in a conversation that began with “the stone game.”  I had just taken some basic training in graphic recording and my only rule was that I wouldn’t say “no” – a game I … Continue reading #clmooc Learning and Gaming Cycle 3

#clmooc Remediation Make Cycle 2

I’ve been really fascinated by what’s coming across my social media feeds as educators of all kinds have tackled the idea of “reMEDIAtion” over the last week in the #clmooc group.  As my avocation is special education for adults, I … Continue reading #clmooc Remediation Make Cycle 2

And now in Korean :)

What fun.  I’ve been thinking a lot about graphic facilitation and graphic recording in terms of languages and translation…   and then was asked to give permission for some of my work, and some featuring Liz Etmanski, to be used for a Korean publication.  I’m sure it says something nice and they were great to deal with 🙂  You can check out the whole article here.

#CLMOOC the deconstructed introduction

The first suggestion from the #CLMOOC folks arrived today: So, what’s the first thing you usually do when you enter a room of folks with some familiar and unfamiliar faces—you introduce yourself, right? So let’s unravel “the introduction” to dive into the Connected Learning principle of equity. The theme this week is Unmaking Introductions. Let’s consider the ways we name, present, and represent ourselves and the boundaries or memberships those introductions create. How do we name ourselves in different contexts—personally? professionally? online? What happens when those contexts converge? How might we take apart our introductions to answer some of these … Continue reading #CLMOOC the deconstructed introduction
