Resources for larger (online) classes
Eight links to resources on teaching large collaborative, participatory classes – applicable to networked learning. The list highlights what I took from each of the resources when revising my syllabuses this semester.
Digital literacy syllabus
Course design and material that can be used in a course teaching digital literacy.
Living on the range, 2021
A Machadian song about range – from household complexities through the mirror of digital text to the clearing of imagination. Written in the hopes of dreaming up a good new year, together.
Teaching online in 2020: a retrospective
A few notes on (personal) energy conservation for future online course iterations; learning how to use the computing and Schön’s design mindset to show and share beyond the (virtual) classroom. Only one problem discussed pertaining to free software (not mentioned more than once as there is nothing about it I would change).

Why I began to program in 2020, lessons learned, reading and challenges for the new year…
Let's get digital
The time and methods that go into my online courses and the free software I use.

The latter involves consideration of technical vs. non-technical knowledge as well as conceptual problems of inclusion and relevance.
A tool for digital literacy
Link to and reflection on the simple Texpattern CMS theme I made to interlink multiple-user content through key words, related articles, categories, the search function, and links to author pages listing authors’ articles. Designed to promote collaborative, project-based relational learning but could be used for IndieWeb.
