Mr. D's Ongoing Projects

Collaborative Lesson Planning (CLP)
CLP explores how can teachers work together to write and give better lessons. Currently I'm co-organizing a study group in cycle 6 The Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) I'm Implementing CLP by sharing my lesson plans I used teaching English in China at Wikiversity. In May I exhibited my research at the Interactive Show at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn. Previously I co-organized two 6-week in cycles 4 and 5 of P2PU. In Gdansk, Poland I gave a speech at the Wikimana 2010 conference.

ESL 101 Conversational American English
Course under development on "common" spoken American English. In April I published the first video lesson on "Greetings". You can watch it on Facebook or download the MPEG and ogg formats.

How to Build an NBA Dynasty
Researching the best way to assemble a team to win multiple championships. Currently I am taking notes on Wikiversity and last fall I wrote a paper summarizing my work thus far as part of a P2PU course.

Paragogy is a theory of peer-based learning. I have co-written two papers on the topic with Joe Corneli, one from late 2010 is "Paragogy: Synnergizing individual and organizational learning".
