My post secondary education started slowly (as I do sometimes– mostly in the morning). First a community college and then a small public college nestled in the midst of the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon. Remoteness is what that little town of LaGrande seems to me now living in this metropolis of Shanghai. From 15 thousand to 25 million in a journey of 25 years since I completed that degree and creeping up on 30 years since I graduated from high school.
Now I am back in school after a hiatus of 10 years. This past weekend we were re-taught how to play the school game. We learned about formatting. We learned about citing sources. We learned that working in teams. We learned that task completion in a timely manner will be counted and finishing on time means something. There was no discussion. There was no arguing. There was only yes. If you don’t you fail.
I am operating on the assumption that this blog will serve me well through this process. Content creation will be certainly be ramped up, and a few more reasons to reflect on my learning processes will emerge as well. I would hope I might have some new ideas to share as well.
Back in the saddle again.
Wish me luck.
