Cyberbullying: A pervasive global issue

May 6, 2017

Cyberbulling cover.001A few years ago I wrote a series of blog posts on cyberbulling. They became some of the most highly read posts on my blog. I have compiled and updated these posts into a single report that be useful for researchers, educators, parents, children and a broad general readership.

This is a highly complex issue and I am by no means an expert in this field. Nevertheless, the topic is an important one. The more conversation we can generate about it and the more awareness we can raise, the better.

This report is intended to serve as a point of departure for further discussion and research for those interested in the topic.

The report is now available as a free, Open Access download from the University of Calgary’s digital repository: http://prism.ucalgary.ca//handle/1880/51974.

Focus Groups: Training Manual for Research Assistants

February 13, 2017

ra-training-manual-cover-001As the research project on academic integrity and plagiarism gets underway, I prepared a training manual for the research assistants I am working with.

This manual is an open source document and I am making it freely available as a .pdf for other scholars and research assistants.

Here is the link to the manual: ra-training-manual-focus-groups-2017-02-10

Here is the complete citation for the manual:

Eaton, S. E. (2017). Research assistant training manual: Focus groups. Calgary: University of Calgary. Retrieved from http://hdl.handle.net/1880/51811

The research team is grateful to the Office of Teaching and Learning, Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary, who awarded funding for this project under the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Grant, 2016-2017.

I have to give a special shoutout of appreciation to Yvonne Kjorlien, Research Facilitator, Werklund School of Education, and Benedict “Kojo” Otoo, Research Assistant, for their review of drafts of this manual and feedback for improvement.

Xpert: Resource bank of copyright cleared open-learning materials

October 10, 2011

The University of Nottingham has created Xpert, a resource bank of (as of today) about a quarter of a million open source resources that are copyright cleared and ready to be used by educators everywhere. Here’s a quick video about the project:

I think the number is resources in this project is going to increase exponentially in the coming months. As of today, I found

  • over 1050 resources under the search term “literacy”
  • about 1075 resources under the search term “languages”
  • over 15,000 resources for “social media”

If you’re looking for materials, ideas or resources for a course or training program, check out Xperts — and send them more links of materials of your own that you are willing to share, too!
