As with everyday for the past 4 weeks, I rode my bike today. Generally, I view my ride to work as a time for reflection and ‘clearing’ of my mind. A terrible cross-wind distracted me. As I thought about the crosswind, and how annoying it was, I wondered if it is perhaps due to the ease of which I find myself distracted that prevents me from being as productive as I would like to be. I really need to work on sentence structure.
EBL (evidence based learning) started at a med-school but has become the topic du jour of many a librarian. Essentially, educators act as mentors in this setting allowing students to use their existing knowledge base to uncover the correct answer. Or something like that. I am currently trying to figure out a way to incorporate this into the humanities and think that a newspaper-type assignment would work best. I am still sketchy on the details.
