  • Connected Learning and Hacking the #Antidote

    By: Pete (@allistelling) and Anna (@anna_phd). The following is a quick-fired dispatch from the outer bank regions of the zombie horde (i.e. from  In the spirit of gameplay (…and let’s admit it, it is a much harder game to play from the human side), we hope to hack last night’s rule release: The #antidote rule states…

  • Communes and Outposts

    There is an clear tension between individual publishing (like on a blog) and communal publishing (like on a forum, Facebook page, or some other commenting thread). Rather than a tension to avoid, the mutually exclusive benefits of these two activities deserve critical distinction and, sometimes, simultaneous usage. I’ve been thinking a lot about these distinct…

  • SPSU/KSU Merger Vote: Contact Information

    I will begin this post by being clear that, in voicing my opinion on the proposed merger (announced Nov. 1 and scheduled for a vote tomorrow, Nov. 12) of Southern Polytechnic State University and Kennesaw State University, I do not purport to represent anyone other than myself. I am Georgia citizen and scholar who cares about…

  • Consolidation Shock

    The State of Georgia learned on Friday, November 1, that the Board of Regents, the governing body of the University System of Georgia, had decided to merge Southern Polytechnic State University — where I just began work this semester in the English, Technical Communication, and New Media Arts Department —  with the much larger Kennesaw…

  • Reset

    I first began writing a blog in 2009 while I was writing my dissertation. I started it in order to do some non-academic writing about my family, what I was reading, and live music. In 2011 I shifted to a second blog in order to better facilitate my writing, conference presentations, and faculty development associated…

  • Meeting our students on Day One

    I tweeted this today and was asked to share my process by a couple of people. Here, in rough outline, is how I spend part of the first day of every class getting to know my students. It’s a pedagogical stance that has proved invaluable over the last fifteen years. On the first day of…

  • One farewell, a decade in the making

    I sent the following email to the faculty, staff, and GTAs in my department this afternoon. It just felt too strange to leave ten years of work behind without some amount of public reflection. After ten years of being a grad student, a GTA, a staff member, and a faculty member, this week is my…

  • #ETMOOC Introduction | Pete Rorabugh

    My introduction to the #ETMOOC community (yes, it’s two weeks late; #yikes). In the introduction I mention some articles; here are links: Hybrid Pedagogy | A Digital Journal of Teaching and Technology Learn Like An Arachnid: Why I’m MOOCifying  | Janine DeBaise Links to follow within 24 hours for Twitter vs. Zombies 2.0 (#TvsZ on…

  • Engagement and Community: Online Teaching Workshop

    Here are the notes to my presentation today at Agnes Scott College. I will be meeting with eight faculty members who are building online classes — some for the first time — for the summer semester. I sent out a tweet asking for posts about how Twitter, or any social media, has been pedagogical valuable….
