Bearings: News & Perspectives for Academic Affairs
My Armstrong Experience—Week EightOct 10, 2012, 03:27 pm - Carey Adams
By the semester clock we're just rounding mid-term. Classes have settled into a steady rhythm and, unless you're busily preparing for a second flex-term class, most teachers are in that comfortable if temporary (very) period where implementation supplants planning as the primary activity. Things look a little different from the administrative point of view, as most of the discussions I am involved in these days have to do with planning, even as we attend closely to carrying out plans previously made. (See Complete College Georgia and SPARC as just two examples.) Here are a few of the planning activities reflected in my weekly calendar agenda:
Based on our dinner-time conversations, my 12-year old thinks I go to meetings for a living. He's not far off! But planning for our future is important and exciting work, and I am thoroughly enjoying working with my faculty, staff and student colleagues.
Have a great week!
