Blog Musings and Not-so-Random Thoughts
Let me see, the prodding questions were:
* What were your favorite discoveries or exercises?
* How has this program assisted or affected your everyday work?
* Were there any unexpected outcomes or take-aways that surprised you?
* What could we do differently to improve this program?
* If another enrichment course of this nature were offered in the future, would you try to participate?
The exercises that have lead to the most thought and discussion for me were the social networking and communication (e.g., Twitter) ones. And that's probably because I have been having conversations about these with my two sons, the youngest being 18. While dad has been learning these "new" tricks, I'm hearing how sites like MySpace and Facebook are already becoming "old school' with the ones that got these off the ground - youth. I guess that shouldn't surprise me, but it is a real-time exposure to the life-cycle of these modern tools and the relatively short life span they have compared to the things that affected me at that age! That said, it makes me constantly wonder where these things will lead. What is the next Twitter, already being developed and beta tested, just around the corner?
At this point, I can't think of anything to change. Maybe that's because this was challenging as it was. The length of time between exercises was just fine. There were plenty of examples in each section to give some depth to the exposure to the topic. I really enjoyed this and would me more than willing to do something like this again.
Amy, you did a great job! Thanks for the effort.
