Well thanks to conferencing this week again, I’ve got a much shorter working (hah) week. Decided to take Friday off as a break, as I am feeling more than a little burned out and in need of a real holiday (again, hah, fat chance on my finances) and this is the closest I can get for now. Lecture day today (penultimate!) on transnational media. I have to say it’s not a subject I especially grok, and the chaotic style of the lecturer didn’t help. She was honestly more distracted than the students (all 25 of them this week). Turning her lecture and seminar suggestions into something scholastic then was a bit of a challenge (to say the least). I think I’ve managed something; but I suspect it won’t be the greatest achievement of the year.
Also did battle with Academia.edu to upload a copy of my presentation at OER14 uploaded. For some reason it screwed up the PDF text (rather like the Mac on the day), so it’s not looking that great. So uploaded a copy to Slideshare – which worked so much better. Even if I’m wary of using Slideshare these days since Linked.in bought them. Anyway here it is:
