I have to admit enjoying this article a little too much.Anyone who did time with Foucault will immediately think ‘panopticon’ when reading this piece about the anti-cheating technologies at the University of Central Florida. But I remember vividly the frustration as a teacher when students would cheat, and I remember the palpable sense of relief among the better students when I interrupted a cheat in progress.

Dear Google. Thank you for this opportunity to apply for the Vice President of Global Higher Education. Rather than talk about my experience, strengths, etc. etc., I'd like to use this opportunity to lay out my plans for Google Higher Education in my first year at the company.Within One Year, Google Will:--Offer a free Google Moodle (GMoodle) learning management system (LMS) to any educational institution.

Part of getting students/kids/people interested in their food is having food that's interesting. And part of using fruits and veg as tempters is using them -- particularly the fruits, in my experience -- where they're not entirely expected.

There is a concept in Labor Economics known as "internal labor markets," which notices that many firms hire employees only at specific points in their career paths and then train them with very firm specific training once they are there. This is a concept that most of us in academics readily acknowledge, as many faculty members are hired at the assistant professor level and then progress on their career paths within that one institution.

This past month, I have been trying to follow fellow blogger Kerry Ann Rockquemore’s advice on how to eliminate summer regret by breaking up my writing goals into small tasks and plotting them onto a calendar of available days. I scheduled weekly dates with my writing “coach”/colleague. I made progress by forcing myself to write drafts even before I felt quite ready, instead of circling around and around a project.

This piece, and its attendant comments, stuck in my craw a little. It’s a discussion with an author of a book about the obstacles to low-income students’ success in college.

So yesterday, I get back home. The last thing I'd done before leaving campus had been to post some thoughts about how people (Greenback students, particularly) were disconnected from the origins of their food, and how that's a hurdle to ecological awareness. Then the first thing that happens after I walk in the door is Mrs. R. slapping a piece of junk mail in my hand and saying "you've got to look at this!" She had a chuckle in her eye, so I knew that I wasn't in any serious trouble.

Here I'm going on "Gut Feelings" and my "Blink" - an approach I wouldn't necessarily recommend.

I’ll stipulate upfront that this will vary by region.

The first book that I'm going to give to my learning and technology team is Rework, by the guys from 37Signals. 288 concise pages - or less than 3 hours in unabridged audio format. We need more books to be this good and this short.
