Not my first attempt at a blog (LiveJournal, Blogger, probably others), but hopefully it will stick this time. Because WordPress is cool, and because I have a purpose?
Plan is to join my ed tech colleagues and heroes (see blogroll) and use a blog to attempt to make sense of my professional world. May digress into gardening, coffee, or other “personal” rants from time to time.
So, context: I’m an instructional designer, I do a lot of Moodling, and I was lured away from my cozy office at beautiful Royal Roads University (for love, what else?), and I now work at a distance. I am lucky to still work for RRU, still with the amazing Centre for Teaching & Educational Technology (CTET) team there. I just do it at a distance (I live in the sticks – at the north end of Okanagan Lake, about 20 min outside of Vernon). This *is* living the dream, and it creates opportunities and challenges that I plan to explore.

So, this (above), and this (below) is where I’m coming from
