The new school year started this evening with my new class, “Uses and Users of Information.” It’s a small class, only ten people! I knew several classmates already, but there are four brand new NCCU SLIS students in the class as well, so it’s a nice mix.
I did something new for tonight’s class: I left my laptop at home! I took a spiral bound notebook, my text and syllabus, plus my iPad in case I needed the internet for something. It turned out to be just fine, and I gained some time by not having to pack up the backpack this morning and unpack it after I got home from class. It felt a little retro, but I think this new setup will work just fine.
I miss having our whole study group in class, but Nancy and a couple other people I know are in there. It’ll be fun getting to know some new people too.
“Uses and Users” has a reputation for having lots of reading, and I think that’s definitely the case. It makes me glad I have just this one class, although I’m the only one in the class taking just one class. Ah, well!
