I spent the day sitting in meetings at my new “home campus” in Lueneburg, Germany, listening to lectures about their new innovative General Education program. And Distance Education. I avoid meetings about such subjects when I am home campus at Chico State. How did such subjects follow me here?
I have lots of opinions about both General Education and Distance Education, but remain really quiet. Listening to German like all day is like sticking cotton in my ears, a task my brain copes with poorly. Trying to say anything in German is like trying to speak with a mouthful of–cotton swabs. The brain is willing, but the ears are too slow, and the mouth too dry. Tomorrow is another day of this.
