Hello June! I have returned from a short break, fresh and rejuvenated, ready to jump headlong into the challenging month ahead. I’m filled with excitement, anticipation, a little giddiness and more than a little anxiety I must say. A healthy dose I am sure! The first day back to office life is always an adjustment for me. So, while going over the various events and activities on my list I was compelled to gesture up a grid as a meditation of sorts and and to summon some calm before the storm. You could also say ‘procrastination‘ right there. Regardless, the #gridsgestures activity just keeps on giving. Now for a quick review to keep us sorted, here is a shortlist of what I’ve got coming down the pipe.
- Next week begins the festival of learning. On top of my regular ETUG commitments (truthfully largely centred around the pub night) I am involved in sharing two studio sessions. First our homegrown “3Ds” of EdMedia workshop in which we share process and give participants a hands on opportunity develop some media themselves. Next, I’m fortunate to be joining up with a stacked cross institution team for Podcast podcast, 123! a session on, well… you know.
- The 2nd week, we will be having our EdMedia showcase, where SFU faculty share the results of the Educational Media projects they have been working on for the past month or show. Expect the Faculty showcase to light up with a fresh batch of largely narrative driven projects.
- Week 3 is a big one, with the first edition of the SKETCHING IN PRACTICE symposium! I’ve got to get my game together for this one as I am playing the role of host for the first time. Still, I expect this to be the highlight of my year, let alone month. Stoked!
- Finally, the following week we rerun the 3Ds workshop, this time on an international stage at EdMedia 2016.
And thats June! There are a few other irons in the fire to be sure, but I hope between doing “Grids and Gestures” drawings, and using my blog, I will be able to share, process and update you on how this all goes down. I’m expecting the best!
