"Learning to live and living to learn"
It was still dark when I got to the office this morning; I managed to slip away without waking the dog! I was always led to believe that dogs slept with one eye open, ready to leap into action in the event of some unexpected movement. This is not the case with Lily, (the dog to which I refer - sorry, I should say, "to whom I refer"). She didn't move a muscle let alone an eyelid.
But I digress!
This morning I had the pleasure of a session with Masters students at the Audencia Business School in Nantes, France and I will have another session this afternoon. The topic - "Soft Skills for Consultants" . I'm trying out a new virtual class set-up but the technology is not behaving the way I want. I wouldn't categorize myself as a luddite but sometimes I think that technology, far from making my life easier, just "bites back" .
I have no choice but to accept that virtual classrooms are going to be the predominant mechanisms for many students in the future and I'm doing my best to embrace the change and learn. The technology didn't behave the way I wanted this morning so I will adjust, adapt, and see what happens this afternoon.
I wonder if Lily missed me when she eventually woke up to discover I wasn't there.
