The Decor for Faculty Development
Spent the day yesterday in faculty development classes. Our focus was how our personality styles affect how we teach ... interesting. I have taken these "Meyers-Briggs' type of tests before, so this one didn't hold any surprises .. but it's always fun to see how 'close' those 'predictors' come.
Our conference room tables were decorated for fall, and I was able to sketch a quick pumpkin resting its napkin before my hands were busy writing other things .... I painted it from memory and a few notes in the right hand corner after I got home. A quick, colorful practice.
I drove the 90 miles back home after the workshop since today we're taking a group of folks to both the Musuem of Life and Science and Sarah Duke Botanical Gardens, and both of those are a quick, easy drive from where I live. Being at home in the middle of the week is such a wonderful treat! I got to play with the kitties and see C! But it's hard to 'remember' that I'm not 'off from work' yet -- LOL
Temperatures today promise to be in the mid-70s to low 80s -- a perfect fall day for visiting the exhibits and gardens!
