Where the Magic Happens

Michael Sampson - Currents

The “study one hour a day for 5 years and you’ll be a world expert” idea. The past two weeks have been the busiest of my year, and it has taken all the hours I have available in a day to get everything done.

Lessons on learning analytics from a taxi driver

Joitske Hulsebosch

For example, looking for the real experts? I've been on a surprise strip. You book a trip for three day but without having a clear where you are going to. Very exciting! We had to be at Schiphol by 5 am and although we were still sleepy: the taxi driver was not.

Beat the Conference Blahs

Partnering Resources

I’ve heard experts tell me what to do and how to do it. You’ll need to set aside budget for the tool (which can be quite inexpensive) and for a subject-matter expert to operate it. It’s Day Two of the convention and my body aches from sitting in one place for so long.

Thinking of resuming a weekly round up of links that have come through my feed in one way or another. I haven’t gotten around to blogging about these links, but I’m sure my readers would be interested in some of them.
