Well, my day started the way it usually does – checking email and catching up on my feeds. This was followed by a Teaching with Technology meeting, where we prepared for a session we’re offering tomorrow on iClickers. Some more catching up followed by a lovely lunch with a colleague. Part networking, part fun – some of the best info sharing and catching up times. I then went to my regular office hours in the Classics department. While these are often quiet times, today proved quite different. I chatted with a number of profs, answering questions, learning what’s happening in the department, helping a grad student and meeting a job candidate. I then headed back to my office, where I called a fellow OLITA council member (I’m OLITA president this year and looking forward to a great year working with some amazing people) and worked on securing a space for Digital Odyssey (stay tuned for more info on this conference). I then worked a bit on an instruction session which I’ll be giving 8 times over the next 2 days. Phew, then it was time to go home.
My day doesn’t end here. Tired, I came home, ate and rested a bit. Then it was time to put on hat #2 – I teach a distance course for library technicians at Mohawk College. I answered a bunch of student questions and posted the latest lecture. Caught up on some more feeds and I still have a little work to do on the instruction sessions. Sometime soon I hope to sleep!
