I'm curious about the word 'fink'-- as in the traditional meaning? No, that wouldn't follow, would it?

Have fun -- but don't get carried away! :)

(groan) I hear all that pedogogispeak, too, at some conferences and on my campus.

Bloom's Taxonomy is getting particularly trying. It's a fifty-year old idea that is served these days removed from the context of Bloom's original work, i.e. the other domains. It's been oversimplified, like a kind nanny has cut it into nice bite-sized moresels for us.

Just another little piece of the self-effacing discourse of constructivism.

Hope you're enjoying the conference.

Cheers

the fink is Dee, right? not that I remember any more than that, but it's been imprinted somehow...

HAhaaa...hilarious. I think there should be a phrase called "prof centered" and that you should use it all the time.
