Some leaves have started to turn on the maple in the backyard and you can almost feel fall in the air. This is a great time of year and I’m excited for what is coming. This semester I will be teaching two courses. One, first year experience for incoming freshman, and the other a course in our EDFL program on technology in the classroom. The two should provide an interesting contrast as one will be centered around new beginnings for mostly 18-20 year olds who are starting their undergraduate experience and the other about equipping in-service educators/adult-learners with skills for using technology in their classrooms and schools.
This year also marks a first for the SOE in that all of the school’s faculty on the Newberg campus will be located in one building. It will be good to be able to so quickly “walk the halls” and touch base with so many of our faculty in one building.
What does the semester hold for you? Are you facing new challenges or opportunities? Leave a comment and let me know.
