This post wraps up another week of tips, tutorials, and commentary on pedagogy, productivity, and technology in higher education.
We certainly hope you found something useful from this week’s offerings:
- Natalie explained Why She Keeps an Idea Notebook.
- In two posts, Mark looked at Twitter backup: “Archiving Twitter on Your Own Server” and “Putting Twitter to Work with Thinkup”.
- I proposed “Working Backwards” as a way to design courses.
- In the latest iteration of “Writers’ Bootcamp,” Billie urged self-care as a writing strategy.
- This week was an excellent one for the more mundane aspects of life: George suggested strategies for simple little tricks we all use to get by. In other well-known office problems, Billie considered how lunches coexist in “The Office Fridge”, I looked at our odd relationships with office supplies, and Heather explained how to shoehorn irregular expenses into a monthly budget.
- In three posts that looked at new developments on ProfHacker-friendly sites or services, I checked in with Digital Humanities Questions and Answers, Ryan reported on the beta release of Scrivener for Windows, and Jeff brought word of Omeka.net.
- In Open Thread Wednesday, George asked for readers’ thoughts on must-listen podcasts.
- Finally, I closed the week with “Weekend Reading: Happy Halloween Edition.”
Have a great week!
