Autumm Caines is a liminal space
Part technologist, part artist, part organizer, part synthesizer
Aspiring to be mostly educator.
Hi – I’m Autumm
Passionate about this thing we call learning and how technology impacts it; I like spending time at the intersections, inbetweens, and middle spaces where things transition from one thing into another.
A first generation high school and college graduate, I’m dedicated to the transformative experience of education for those to whom the opportunity often does not present itself.
I currently work full-time as an Instructional Designer at the University of Michigan – Dearborn and part time at College Unbound as Instructional Faculty in Digital Citizenship and Web and Portfolio Design. Prior to this I held professional appointments at St. Norbert College and Capital University. In the Open, I work with questions of presence and spontaneity in synchronous virtual conversations as well as equity and inclusion in online community. I also help to organize and facilitate Open/Connected online events for the purposes of faculty development and my own practice in digital stewardship. You can find me on Mastodon.
Anything I post on this site is a reflection on the tech/higher ed/open education landscapes broadly and unless specifically noted do not reflect my work with any specific employer, organization, or movement.
In other words:
Thoughts expressed in this blog are my own.
