A Collaborative Resource

I considered strictly doing a reflection for today's activity. Not because I am shy (though I am naturally an introvert) or because I find collaboration annoying (I actually enjoy it... though people management can be annoying). Nor am uncomfortable with collaboration. I thoroughly enjoy it and feel that it benefits me in many ways. Not only am I better when collaborating, but I feel I help make others better as well. I am far from a "Great Collaborator" as outlined in the SamePage article, I do consciously try to exhibit some of those traits. 

  1. I do feel that I am team focused as I rarely think of my work teaching as a solo project: it is always about the faculty and what is best for the students in the overall scheme of things.
  2. I am naturally curious. I want to know how things work and how I can improve them. I love to tinker, whether it be physically or metaphorically.
  3. I try to build relationships, tear down walls, and be generally diplomatic. If there is an opportunity to bring people together, I will do what I can to make that happen, particularly if it benefits them and whatever project I might be working on.

So all of that being said, the main reason I am a day behind on activities is that I have been collaborating with Helen DeWaard (author of day 5 of this same MOOC) on a presentation we were doing on Making Media in the Open for the Georgian College #EdTechDays2018. The resource I would like to share is our slide deck, which is licensed CC-BY, so feel free to use it, borrow from it, modify it, share it, delete it, or completely ignore it... the choices are yours. Also, any feedback you might be interested in sharing would be greatly appreciated
