Since I railed on the faculty yesterday, I will compliment them today. My favorite comment below, by the way, is Tim’s because I have so been there. I’ve spent a long time fiddling with video settings in front of crowds of people.
Today, I was out and about on campus and ran into lots of faculty. Every single one of them thanked me for something I’ve done in the last couple of weeks. And we continued to have conversations about various things, some technical and some not.
One woman was sad that I was unavailable to run a workshop for her class and I had recommended a couple of other people who could do it. She said, “I’m sure they’ll be fine, but you’re the best.” It was nice to hear.
And, I ran a nice workshop on PowerPoint. All in all worth dealing with the problem children.
