Traditional pedagogy for learning alphabetic principles focuses on introducing the alphabet a letter at a time in a traditional order—the ABCs for English speakers; ཀ་ཁ་ག་ང་། for Tibetan. What educational research has shown, however, is that this form of education can actually be disadvantageous to the beginning reader. Instead, students b…[Read more]
I’m starting this group for people interested in creating, using, sharing, and discussing open educational resources in the humanities. This space can be used for discussion (reply to existing topics or create new ones for new questions), sharing information about events and initiatives, and to build a collection of open educational resources…[Read more]
