Dark Souls II Review – GameSpot Or Teaching Should be more Like Dark Souls

I think we should take a page out the From Software playbook when it comes to approaches to teaching. Offer no comfort. Present new “dangerous” ideas to students, and teach them to face what’s coming because it won’t always be nice and pretty. After three games of hitting a wall at the 30-hour mark, Dark […]

Academic Reading Back-log Clean up

I’m quite happy that I’m finally making a sizable dent in my reading backlog. Sadly much of this should was to be completed during a summer research project that kind of fizzled all my fault.

William Deresiewicz’s Weird Anti-Ivy Elitism – The Conversation – Blogs – The Chronicle of Higher Education

My first read has me siding very closely with Deresiewicz, but I’ve been known to say “It doesn’t matter where you go to, but what you make of your educational opportunities” William Deresiewicz’s Weird Anti-Ivy Elitism – The Conversation – […]
