Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 10

“Loneliness kills. It’s as powerful as smoking or alcoholism,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life. “It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship,” says Waldinger, “It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 4, 2017

“Good relationships don’t just protect our bodies; they protect our brains…And those good relationships, they don’t have to be smooth all the time. Some of our octogenarian couples could bicker with each other day in and day out, but as long as they felt that they could really count on the other when the going got tough, those arguments didn’t take a toll on their memories,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life.

Participatory Spontaneity – Key Words

When observed, the engagement concept of Participatory Spontaneity resonates with the following key words:

KeyWordsPSDrTeague

The key that is the central concept for me is one I learned about over 30 years ago while in undergraduate courses.  My professor, Dr. Chantrey Fritts, emphasized the importance of Collegiality in teaching and learning. Collegiality is relational.

Collegiality is the relationship between colleagues (Link). Colleagues are those explicitly united in a common purpose and respecting each other’s abilities to work toward that purpose (Link).

Because of new media opportunities, our audience of colleagues grows beyond borders.
