Whew! I am now FREE to wipe away beads of sweat from my brow, accumulated over the course of last week’s presentations and final deadlines.
First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you who took the time to attend my SpARC and CTL presentations last week. Both were a result of a lot of hard work (and not just my own!), and I was so pleased to see how many people turned out to watch me talk. Now, I know I’d mentioned along the way that my SpARC presentation would be filmed by the Technology Production Studio, which … it almost was. Unfortunately, there was some camera malfunction and the talk wasn’t able to be recorded. Normally, this would mean Bummertown, Population: Me. As luck would have it, though, my CTL presentation on digital portfolios with Nell Ruby and a few students was taped by my glorious supervisor, Emily Gwynn. Hark! Not all is lost.
In the meantime, I’ll be posting the PowerPoint I’d made for my SpARC presentation, for the benefit of those of you who were unable to attend. I’m an advocate of “short-and-sweet” PowerPoints, but I think the salient points come across — look for it on the Reports section of this site.
Some of today will be spent editing the CTL video for your viewing pleasure. Calvin Burgamy and I have decided we’ll be posting that on Agnes Scott’s iTunes U. page (which is accessible to the outside community), and I’ll let you know when it’s available!
