So here I am, on August 8, starting to plan for the new semester, which will be my last one as a full-time (well, full-time sort of, part-time/full-time) professor. Retirement, here I come! I met today with Rob Mundy, a professor of English and director of the Writing Enhanced Course program. So I'm starting to think about syllabi, books, assignments, stuff like that.
I'm guessing that for me, in a way, summer is over. What about you?
Or is it? Between the news from Istanbul, and the "Brexit" vote, I'm starting to feel like "I'm just visiting this planet." So I changed the title of this blog from the bland, "Connie Knapp's Blog" to "I'm just visiting this planet." Because that's how I feel.
And then there's my own stuff-planning my retirement from 30+ years of college teaching. And there's another place where I have other worldly experiences-college teaching has changed drastically over the last 30 years, but that's another story-visit me at Being An Information Systems Professor for that story.
I do love the summer, and I always have a list of projects miles long. This summer is no different. So, just for fun, here's my list:
Finish Sage Lewis's Udemy course on setting up a GoDaddy web site using Wordpress.
Finish AndrewWilliams's Udemy course on plain old Wordpress
Start Andrew Williams's Udemy course on installing Wordpress locally
