Summer Institute is over and I’m back home in the Twin Cities.
Looking back at the conference, I realize just how valuable it was to me in terms of content and networking.
This was largely to do with the conference itself, but also because I did some things right to maximize my experience:
– took obsessive notes
– kept my papers as organized as possible
– slept enough
– wore comfortable shoes
– was open to serendipitous socializing
There are those attitudes, soft skills, and environmental supports we say our students need. We need them too!
I’m looking forward to processing more this weekend. I’ll post more about the conference in some form and also go on to more “normal” posts on Monday.
