  • Qualitative Research Rebooted 2018 For the past two months, I’ve been occupied with a qualitative study of teachers’ use of digital technology in Alberta Schools. The study is sponsored by the Alberta Teachers’ Association.  It has been very useful for me to get down to actually doing a full scale qualitative study after years of teaching grad students research [...]
  • More on Distance Education Journal Ra... Both academics and administrators love to argue about the value (impact) of their academic work.  The old adage of “Publish or Perish” still has currency. Despite the many distribution opportunities besides and beyond publishing in scholarly journals, the bean counters (myself included) love citation indexes. The basic idea is that the more your work is [...]
  • What the FOLC is new in this article? Sorry, but I couldn’t resist spoofing, in the post title,  the unfortunate sound of the acronym for the “new” model proposed in this article.

    Dear Terry,
    Kudos to the Australian government who have the best interest of their people.

    I think that Canada’s education system will eventually catch up, but having a more connected and congruent system of educational exchanges and delivery would be most welcome for the sake of efficiency, developmental progress and costs.

    I think there are many people in Canada that can promote this, but that it will be the next generation that will make it happen. They need support to make the quality experiences for all to which you are referring. I do think that there needs to be psychological growth in terms of how people understand the impact of education and connection, particularly in terms of helping our local, national, and global concerns.
