Top ten 2015, part 1

As I start the new year, it's a good opportunity to reflect on the previous year. A few of my favorite topics from 2015:
In higher education, we need to constantly remain aware of the changing landscape. How can technology be applied to the teaching and learning mission of the university? This year, I also discussed other aspects of classroom computing, including Active learning classrooms and Media collaboration tables.
Over the last few years, a colleague and I worked with a new software package that assists in rhetorical analysis of texts. We also presented at the 2015 Minnesota e-Learning Summit. I've described the DICTION software several times, including Analyzing rhetorical texts made easy.
There's no doubt that open source software, smartphones, and streaming media have changed how we interact with the world.
At Morris, we shared a commitment to green energy, so it was a no-brainer for us to commit to low-carbon IT.
As a leader, you can influence the culture of your work environment. How you engage with those around you can be positive or negative. This is closely related to Leadership presence.
I'll share a few other favorite topics next week.
