Day One

Let’s play Jeopardy!

Contestant #1: Alex, I’ll take U.S. Geography for $200

Alex Trebeck: The answer is – Rhode Island and Connecticut

Contestant #1: “What are two states that smaller than the Liberty University campus?”

Alex Trebeck: “You are right!”

I started the day off feeling great.  Dr. Randy Dunn and I are kindred spirits when it comes to technology so the opening session was fine.  Then those of us who were newbies went to our orientation.  I kept waiting for something that would help me understand what it would take to get my doctorate.  It may have been mentioned, but all I remember is the multitude of things that could stand between me and my doctorate.  It felt like day one of Biology 101 at Rutgers University in 1979.  Our lecturer, Dr. Maiello, gave us the “look to your left, look to your right, one of you will not be here by the end of this week” speech.

After that fun time, we went to The Tabernacle of the Gospel Bird, better known as Chick-fil-A.  As always, the service, and  the chicken, were exceptional.

In the afternoon session, Dr. Dunn went all “educational” on us.  In addition to being very strong technologically, he is extremely strong in his knowledge of education, not only at the academic level, but also at the practical, education delivery level.  I need to be where he is.

We wrapped the day up with group time.  I have a great group of teammates.  We had to refocus our team project work.  After asking several questions of Dr. Dunn, we had a solid understanding of the expectations for the next day.

We talked about cat dancing videos several times throughout the day.  I prefer skateboarding dogs.
