It’s Not Just About Going Online

I started this blog post — about the conundrum of working from home without childcare — about three months ago now, and couldn’t bring myself to finish the post. There is no happy conclusion that works for capitalism, no solution that magically puts people before…

What About Fall?

When Boston University announced that they are considering reopening in January 2021, I couldn’t help but wonder: when will we decide if we are going online for the fall semester? Up until now, it’s felt inconceivable to even consider it for a variety of obvious…

What Comes Next

Four years since my last post. FOUR YEARS. My kid turned five a few weeks ago. So I guess that makes some kind of sense. I started this blog nine years ago — as a privately-public space to ask and explore questions at the intersection of education,…

Gendering the Policy-Practice Gap

I gave a guest lecture today in a Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Course, “Women: Images and Realities.” What a neat experience. Although my work as a professor is always infused in some way by thinking about gender, it is not the main focus of my…

Why meta? I am currently blogging about talking about blogging. I was in Montreal for a few days and had the opportunity to speak in my colleague’s Qualitative Methods and Educational Psychology class at McGill University. I presented something similar to what I shared at…

iPad State of Mind

In a little less than an hour, at 10am ET, Apple plans to make an education-related announcement, and I’m not gonna lie: I’m excited to hear what’s on deck. There’s been speculation on blogs and such about what will be revealed, and in particular, what…

This Friday, I’ll be participating on this panel at the CUNY IT Conference. 9:30am-10:45am. John Jay College.  Come learn about what’s happening at OpenCUNY as we share what we’ve been doing with our various websites.  As an aside, I recently learned you could host a…

Don Giovanni and an App for Binoculars

Last night, I had the privilege of going to the opera for the first time.  As the opening bars of Mozart’s famous opera, Don Giovanni, began, I resisted the urge to hum along, and found myself tearing up before the curtain was drawn.  I have long wanted…
