As the mid-term approaches for this class — I realize the semester is going by very rapidly. First, on a personal level it is very difficult not to acknowledge the challenge of working full time, being a parent of two young children and trying to complete graduate studies. I realize that it is simply not ideal for learning. Something seems to suffer whether it is work or spending time with my children — or the quality of my studies for my LIS Program.
That said, I am surprised at just how much I am learning this semester. Some of the activities and readings have been very interesting to date. The think tank activities have been very good. The articles and readings are interesting.
Our group work as it has been in previous classes has been challenging in terms of connecting with the other members and getting everyone on the same page and participating. But overall it has been rewarding and interesting to learn from my classmates – including hearing their feedback regarding my own work.
