yet another sink-hole of my time

When I train faculty in Powerpoint and other tools, I always teach them how to change the colors, backgrounds, themes, etc stuff LAST as I know this has the potential to be their great undoing, causing them to spend endless hours matching the button colors in their Blackboard course to their color scheme of their textbook (you laugh… but don’t tell me this hasn’t happened to you!) Who cares about content when you can get the background to match your socks?

And then what do -I- do? I spend 15 minutes finding a new background for this blog. Okay the sauce for dinner was cooking. It was either this or Oprah…

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
