Friday Wrap-up: Conferences, Classes, and Conjurers

Filed under: Children, Food, I.T, Just Plain Weird, Librarian — liberrydwarf @ 12:20 pm

1) One Good Thing: Gave excellent and exciting conference workshop presentation with @katiedatwork and @andvanessa. Everyone muchly impressed. @NaomiDoessel is the best facilitator/organizer ever!

2) One Bad Thing: Taught my first tutorial as a sessional academic on Tuesday. I was brilliant – but where were the students? So few people showed up (out of the 40 or so meant to attend, there were 12 all up) we ended up combining our tutorials and team-teaching. And it was the world’s most boring tutorial material. We do what we can, people…

3) One Thing I Learned: several new magic tricks. On account of how small children can’t keep a secret to save their lives, and we had Magician night at Joey Scouts. (I performed the famous Pre-Cut Banana trick to thunderous applause and wild-eyed amazement – or maybe they were just happy because they got food.)
