As is usual for this time of the year, I am beyond overloaded with exhibit development, committee meetings, midterms, etc. I look longing at my colleagues who only show up to teach, complain because they have to come on campus more than 2 days a week (!!), and serve on maybe one or two committees at the departmental level. I want their jobs. While I'm neglecting this blog, I'm blogging almost daily at another site (and under a different pseudonym) that represents my latest experiment in holding students accountable to each other for group projects and lab hours. Each of them maintains a blog linked to my primary course blog on museum methods. I think it has been a pretty effective strategy for managing this class and project. Rented Life--I caught your recent post on group work via my RSS feed and wanted to respond; stay tuned and I'll go into more detail when I hit Spring break--I'm hoping to snare at least ONE day of that for something not entirely job-related! I actually took this past Saturday off from work and have photos to prove it.
