Not having access to a scanner sucks...its almost as bad as not having a pen! But, I decided not to let this minor setback keep me from posting as, at the moment, I am so inspired. This past week has been a transcontinental "world wind"...uh, literally. I've been to Portland, Seattle, New Jersey (if you count a 14 hour layover in an airport) and Atlanta (amid the tornado)!
As I write, I am still in Atlanta where I've been attending the National Conference on the Beginning Design Student at Georgia Tech. The conference is just as cool as it sounds with design educators from across the country making presentations on their teaching pedagogies, student projects and design philosophies.
My department chair, Tommy, and I presented on...you guessed it....blogging! Specifically, we addressed using blogs in the classroom as both teaching tools and portfolio devices. We received some valuable feedback and I'm ready to go back home and work on making the system even more effective.
This week has been so refreshing and I look forward to packing the inspiration it has carried with it in my luggage as I head back to NC (and my scanner) tomorrow.
