2014 Recap: Critical Pedagogy, Zombie Pedagogy, Digital Pedagogy

First, if you haven’t already, meet Emily Dog.

In addition to the stuff I wrote here on my own blog, I published a hodgepodge of stuff elsewhere in various media in 2014. I’m gathering much of it here. I started doing this in 2012 and then again in 2013, mostly as a way for me to keep track of what I’m up to. But it’s also turned into a way to introduce people to some of my favorite places to hang out on the web (and to the amazing collaborators I’ve worked with over the year).

I wrote several prompts for the six-week MOOC, but one in particular has stuck with me: MMDU: “I Would Prefer Not To.”

Slideshare
I’ve never been a fan of slides (aside from showing a film still here and there), but this year, I decided to get my head under the hood of the form, so I made 12 sets, all of which I published openly to the web. Here’s a few which I used for keynotes in Manchester and Colorado, a workshop in Singapore, and talks in Switzerland, Wisconsin, and D.C.:
