"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education." --Albert Einstein

Due to extenuating circumstances (i.e., my having no voice), I had to conduct an experiment in my introductory chemistry lecture today on having students teach themselves. In a sense, it was a bit of an inverted classroom, too.

In a word, it was both miserable success and grandiose failure.

They had been introduced to the topic previously in their lab courses as well as having been asked to read ahead in the textbook, and then were given another handout that went through...

Longing for sunny days...

Posted April 2, 2014 at 07:47 AM by Shalafi (View From The Tower)

So I am sitting here in my office, between appointments, looking out at the TWO feet of snow that fell yesterday, and I am so acutely aware of one thing...


Winter started here in November, with the first snow fall that stayed on the ground. It has been cold (at times VERY cold) and snowy here EVER SINCE. 5 months and counting of cold winter weather. Its enough to drive you mad.

Work is work, and I tire of it, like everyone does....
