I plan to write more later and/or hopefully embed a video of the actual talk and perhaps a transcript. But for now time is pressing and I wanted to make the slides available in advance. So without further ado, here's my contribution to the OTESSA21 Conference, June 2, 2021.

Domains19 Reflection, Well Really More of A Thanks.
I just got back from the Domains19 conference and some thanks and perhaps observations are in order. It was a very interesting, stimulating, and useful conference. Frankly, I've come to expect nothing less from the ReclaimHosting crew: Jim, Tim, Lauren, Meredith, Judith, and Justin(?, we didn't meet yet, I think). It's a human level conference … Continue reading Domains19 Reflection, Well Really More of A Thanks.
Can We See the Real U? (OER19)
It's been a couple days after the fact, but I wanted to make a post to go with my presentation at OER19. Fortunately, thanks to the nice folks at ALT and the magic of Martin Hawksey, I don't have to try to write a long post explaining what I said and you don't have to … Continue reading Can We See the Real U?

Reflection on OpenEd18: Becoming Open Education

This is the first of two reflections I'll post about the conference. In this one, I'll give some broad impressions of the topics … Continue reading Reflection on OpenEd18: Becoming Open Education
OER, Higher Ed, and the Commons
After spending the past year studying both the economics of a commons, as well as the history and evolution of higher education, it's long past time to say something about what I've figured out. This is the first post along those lines and I hope it's not the last. What follows here is a light … Continue reading OER, Higher Ed, and the Commons
Road to a Commons of Our Own: Background
Note this is most of the abstract for today's presentation at OER18 in Bristol, UK entitled "Commons of Our Own". I've embedded the slides for the presentation at the end. Disclaimer: This is the advance abstract written months before I created the slides. We'll see what I actually say today. I'm kind of curious about … Continue reading Road to a Commons of Our Own: Background
OER, CARE, Stewardship, and the Commons
Lisa Petrides, Douglas Levin, and C. Edward Watson recently released the CARE Framework, but apparently some people, David Wiley in particular, don't care for the framework. Stephen Downes has already I think responded in two brief posts here and here. Stephen's posts are brief and I think pretty spot-on. Nonetheless, I'll soldier on and try to … Continue reading OER, CARE, Stewardship, and the Commons
