Rationale for Proposed Changes in ISSoTL’s Bylaws

Posted by Dan Bernstein, Past President and Chair of the Leadership and Elections Committee, on behalf of the Board of Directors who have voted to present the revised set of bylaws for approval by the Society’s membership


Canadian, eh?

This blog post is intended as a regional update to let you know what’s happening in Canada. Even as I write that, I have to acknowledge that there are so many pockets of SoTL innovation across the country these days that anything I could write would be an incomplete overview; I will focus therefore on a national level initiative.

Welcome to a New Year of Not Being Busy…

A week before the end of term, my Masters of Education students were talking before class about how very busy they were (working full-time, finishing term, juggling family responsibilities, etc. etc.). I sat and listened, and before long the room resonated with bzzzbzzzbzzzbzzz. It made me realize I’d been hearing the ‘busy’ refrain for a long time – colleagues no longer respond to “how are you?” with fine; instead they say they’re “busy.” Students have noted they are often overwhelmed with busy-ness (Acai, 2013 and others).
