Three Sides to a Story (the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly)

I know numerous individuals who have gotten story ideas from their surroundings. During the holiday season, before COVID-19 hit, my family and I would go to the mall to complete last-minute Christmas shopping but also to watch individuals scatter around. Often, we begin to create life stories for the individuals we see and add to […]

Into the Void

The highest point of this week for me was watching the New Jersey Devils, the best hockey team in the Metro bubble, finally pull their roster off of COVID-protocol and beat the Rangers spectacularly on their first night back!

Idea vs Reality in the Post Pandemic University

          I’ve been reflecting a lot on how difficult it is to bridge the gap between ideas and reality. This was made clear last week in our discussing of IEHospitality and trauma informed practices, and it is clear in this week’s consideration of the internet. The ‘reading’ (podcast) for this week, “The Internet of the […]

Heads or Tails?

The reality of the internet has finally come to light this past year. With the global pandemic, no one really noticed the flaws, perks and various angles of the internet. But so much has happened and some of it had been calmed, instigated and balanced with the help of social media and information at your […]

IEH and Trauma-Informed Pedagogy

Thanks to Amber for trailblazing some important considerations as we continue to think about digital citizenship and education in the age of pandemic, and as we dream of a post-pandemic university that is transformed.

Digital Wellbeing

To start off with, I wanted to share a brief audio story I made at the direction of Professor Alan. We were challenged to write an audio story of our position in relation to class. I’m starting with this first as I feel it will leave a fitting impression to my thoughts this week: Second, […]
