Who I Am
Everything in this site–for good or ill–is attributable to Dr. Adam J. McKee unless otherwise specified in a particular document. I am a professor of criminal justice at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. The university is in no way affiliated with this site nor its content; I am a rogue actor acting in my private capacity, and my opinions are my own.
I focus on the following areas:
- Personal Finance for Helping Professionals
You can reach me via email at McKee@uamont.edu.
Read my full CV if you’re interested in the academic stuff.
I also do freelance writing and web design.
The primary purpose of this site is to disseminate my Open Educational Resource (OER) materials to the world. If you are not familiar, OER texts (and other materials) are designed to be made available to students for free. My usual strategy is to make the HTML versions free under a creative commons license, and to make Kindle eBooks and print (paper) books available at a very low price. Instructors are free to embed these resources into an LMS (e.g., Blackboard) shell under the creative commons license. Just cut and paste it from these blog pages. The eBook versions and print versions are not in the public domain. (Amazon will only distribute these if they have exclusive distribution rights).
Over time, maintaining these OER materials incurs some fairly large expenses. If you are a benevolent soul that wishes to help me defray some of these costs by making a small donation to the cause, you can earn my eternal gratitude via PayPal:
Need a Host for Your OER?
Have an OER project that needs a home? Have a pedagogical aid that the world needs to access? I am willing to “host” any OER materials that are of high quality and released under a creative commons license. Contact me via the email above if this is of interest.
