Introducing: Your Faculty’s Studio Practices

   
The details… Welcome back! I hope you all had both a restful and a festive winter break.

I am writing to make you aware of a new blog that is starting today called “Beyond the Classroom.” It is a weekly (or so) blog focusing on faculty studio practices. My hope is that is will be an easy and accessible way to learn what your faculty are doing when they’re not teaching.

The blog has images of faculty work – both final work and work in progress as well as images of their studios. There is also a Q&A with each participant focusing on how they work, what motivates and challenges them, and major ideas running through their work.

Check it out and then let me know what you think, who you’d like to see next, and visit weekly.

Learning Resource Center Tip of the Week: BE FLEXIBLE!

   
The details… This week’s tip is simply a reminder that when the inevitable “unexpected” happens (sickness, car troubles, etc.) responsibilities (work, studio projects, written essays, exam prep) do not stop. In other words, you need to be able to fit the unexpected into your schedule. When the unexpected starts to mess with your schedule (or if you want to plan ahead), stop in the Learning Resource Center to learn how to rearrange your schedule (so it doesn’t’ manage you – you manage it). Learning practical strategies for being flexible includes knowing who to ask for help. Don’t be shy.
