Since fear is the mind killer, I am trying to have some courage. My mind needs all the help it can get these days. My fear in joining the Open Learning 17 faculty collaborative isn’t really about writing poorly or having nothing to say that anyone else wants to read (although I have those fears too); but more a fear that I won’t be able to keep up! Fear of being too busy. But Laura Vanderkam recently reminded us that it isn’t about the quantity of time we have, but about how we set our priorities. I am setting out this semester to facilitate an Open Pedagogy Learning Community at Keene State College where I work- but I have a lot to learn! It seems like a good idea for me to take advantage of as many learning opportunities as I can, so here I am.
