Comment on A conversation with Susan Albertine about Faculty Collaboratives by Susan Albertine

Mark’s comments get straight to the point. How do faculty and administrative leaders find effective ways to network–so that we advance students’ learning? I can think of a lot of excuses for missing the best networking opportunities in the California Community Colleges. But instead of offering excuses, I’d like to continue moving ahead. That’s the point of the Faculty Collaboratives Open Learning ’17

Thank you, Mark, for the reality check. I hope you will keep on!

Comment on A conversation with Susan Albertine about Faculty Collaboratives by Mark Corbett Wilson

Greetings
I’m a retired scientific glassblower that has returned to a California Community College to update my skills and complete my Associates degree. I have been researching AAC&U’s LEAP and VALUE as well as eportfolios for lifetime learners. After eight years of collaboration between California and the AAC&U, I have found no one that is aware of LEAP in one of the largest CC Districts in the largest CC system, although I have spent years in shared governance and know most of the leaders in my CCCD. The cynic in me notices that most grant money goes to administration and very little ever finds its way to where it can actually help the students that have the greatest need.
I’m looking forward to learning more through #openlearning17 as I decide whether or not to continue in higher education. I look forward to working with you both on the internets.
Mark

Around 1989, I got to work briefly in the Central VA, market straight out of community college practically, at our local AM station. We actually turned our transmitters off at night due to FCC regulations on our signal. Good times, good times. Eventually the station I worked at got put on full satellite downlink automation and they only broadcast with local DJs for about 12 hours out of the day. And I got to be there on the AM station with 2 turntables and a microphone (no music on carts, we had CDs slowly creep in much later). Thanks sharing this it brought back my memories too.

Wow, Dave–what an honor to have your comment! Beach Patrol really was great fun and a great education, too. And you were another great boss and mentor. Thanks for that great summer and for all you contributed to that Roanoke Valley radio magic! And thanks for that correction about the sponsor. The stories are much better when the details are right.

Gardner: What a great piece about Bart. I left ROV just before he came there, but
got to know him a little bit in later years and of course listened to him every day. What
a great talent. Thanks for this. (By the way, Beach Patrol was sponsored not by Coppertone, but by Hawaiian Tropic, the “tan of the islands”

Wonderful tribute to Bart. So many memories of him and the old ‘ROV. Things do move forward in time and Bart said in his last WROV broadcast that “all things have to come to an end.” I find that as I get older, that statement gets harder and harder to accept. Fair winds and following seas Bart. Godspeed…

Funny you should ask. I just found the highest fidelity aircheck I’ve heard on web: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WQofA809Hs&feature=youtu.be. I’ve edited the post above to include the audio.

Lots of airchecks at the WROV history site as well: http://www.patrickwgarrett.com/WROV/Airchecks/airchecks.htm, including the great local hit Bart wrote and performed: “I’ve Got A Pickle Jar Lid And I Carry It In My Pocket, Baby” http://www.patrickwgarrett.com/WROV/Airchecks/BartPJL.mp3.
