Welcome to "It's All Academic." It started as a book (more information here) and evolved into more than 350 weekly blogs. Many initially were about issues of higher education, but after 6 years, there is little new in that subject matter to discuss. Perhaps I should now name the site "It's No Longer All Academic."
As best as they can be, the blogs are organized by the archives in the menu.
Current blogs: Confirmation Bias Age (Academics can't even heal themselves)
I'm Not It (On being tagged)
Outcomes Assessment In The Dark (Agony of annual assessment)
A bevy of recent blogs:
Poltergeists, Not Poets (Discordant public discourse)
Campaign (Whooo, Whooo)
Verbal Kin: The Academic Conference Title Template (When gerund meets adjective ad infinitum or ad nauseam)
More Fun In The New Job Posting World (Advertisement for an Executive Director of Provost Communications)
Tilt (On going after windmills)
When (And Where) You Rank (On a proprietary college ranking site)
Voodoo Doll Revolution (Study encouraging use of voodoo dolls as workplace conflict resolution)
Bringing In The Sheaths (Executive Director for Male Contraception Initiative needed)
Fears Facing South (Confronting our worst fears)
No Moral Higher Ground (People too readily claiming such higher ground)
Prayed Upon (More school massacres)
It's All Academic: The Musical (A Work In Progress)
Just A Game (Chapter 8 scene of staff basketball game)
Deliver Me (Chapter 9 Scene with student complaint about confusing delivery options)
