Day 3 did not let up at all – Digital Redlines – #DigPed 2017

Going into it I thought day 3 may let up a little bit. After the breadth of conversations and activities of the first two days I needed some chill time. Sean encouraged us to take this time in his opening remarks, but I’m pretty stubborn. Although it is a long week, it is but a […]

Borrowing notes & memos – Day 2 from #DigPed 2017 #FXBG

Things heated up today. Before I could jump into the keynote, I had to call into the New Faculty Orientation session happening at Davidson College.

Sensory memory is so tightly tied to sound that we (or I at least) often recall so many things based on the sounds of our […]

An #opened16 #IdeaVomit

Gardner Campbell’s opening keynote was preceded with a short film he’d made.
