Hello Ontario Extend West!
Today, I invite you to have a little think about what you’d like to do with your time in the Extend West cohort and maybe consider another piece we have to offer you as a member of the community.
Let’s be clear, all of the settings pictured above are all completely unofficial. They are also all equally important. I think that a nice mix of levels of engagement are healthy for the community and you are free to move up and down the swimming-in-a-cold-lake analogy continuum as you wish.
But today I want to make sure you know about the cannonball option. The jump right on in and see what happens option.
In other words, we have a number of self-hosted Domain of One’s Own sites to offer Extenders who would like to pursue the Ontario Extend badges. eCampusOntario has purchased (2 year’s worth of) some sites to help increase the open sharing of pedagogy by Ontario PSE educators. If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will follow up with your next steps.
If you’ve already begun blogging on your own site, have no fear, we can help you move over to a self-hosted site.
So, what do you think? Make a splash?
