Hybrid Hospitality

While reading “Intentionally Equitable Hospitality in Hybrid Video Dialogue: The context of virtually connecting” I found that this is an article that educators should read. As we have now reached a full year of virtual instruction, one may believe that they are aware of the difficulties that hybrid instruction brings, but it is clear that […]

Daily Create- A Droodle

@ds106dc #tdc3318 My response for Today's #ds106 Daily Create is: Since we are breeding everything with poodles these days, why not breed the last surviving dragon from Game of Thrones with a poodle = Droodle pic.twitter.com/mtL89vwjaH — SheilaK (@SheilaK00283745) February 11, 2021

VConnecting

The reading for this week was very informative on the dynamics involved in equity in our new world of living in a virtual world.  It was eye opening to see how many potential barriers can get in the way of offering a fair opportunity for people from all different kinds of backgrounds and situations to […]

If You’re Stressed, It’s Intentionally Equitable Hospitality We Suggest!

So, maybe professors won’t sing and dance and do tricks with their fellow professors/ candlesticks, but this week’s reading, “Intentionally Equitable Hospitality in Hybrid Video Dialogue: The Context of Virtually Connecting,” brought Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast to the forefront of my mind.

Who Cares’?

It was nice to kick off our journey into the PPU. I feel like we all took something away from the messages that were being given to us. I thank each of you for your time, patience and empathy as we went through the information about the careers gap. Could I ask each of you […]

Building Community Activities Online

As soon as I read the title to each of the reading for the week, ideas started to swirl around in my head.  I have always been a boy that, as Yoda put it, “Looked to the stars…never his mind on where he was.”  It’s true and it has served me well. Right after reading […]

The Body in the Post-Pandemic University

A theme that is beginning to emerge in my contemplation of the material we are reading in NetNarr is Body. I realize the notion of Body is not a new one and there are many, many people before me that have fleshed this out. This framework of the Body started to come to me partly […]

Unintentionally Inequitable Hybrid Instruction

“Intentionally Equitable Hospitality in Hybrid Video Dialogue: The context of virtually connecting” by Maha Bali, et al. describes how the VConnecting (Virtually Connecting) community facilitates “hybrid conversations” by livestreaming academic conferences for virtual participants who are unable to attend in person. By practicing “intentionally equitable hospitality,” the VConnecting community encourages historically marginalized and disenfranchised groups […]

Connect in a Time of Disconnection

Virtual connection is definitely not the same as an in-person connection. So why would it be useful? Maybe for conferences with attendees that can’t physically attend…that would be the best reason right? But what about when the whole world gets caught up in a diseased and deadly storm, when gestures of love and intimacy are […]

Strength of Community

Going off the reading list in the semester (I’m hoping I got this right), I spent a bit of time going through Equity Unbound’s OneHE site. It’s an open educational resources page spearheaded by many different people (including Dr. Zamora!) I feel this was an appropriate and welcoming transition from last class’s theme of caring […]
