Perhaps one of the most insane things I did in 2012 was enroll myself in some college courses for 2013. I haven’t been enrolled in a college course since 1995, so this should be interesting. At the end of this month I begin two courses in online education (fundamentals and practical design and application) and one in plant propagation, which I mentioned earlier.
So from the end of January through March I should be a very busy girl. I’m also taking a nutrition class in April, and a Modern European Mysticism course later this year (don’t know when that one starts yet). Most of it’s for my own edification. There is a good reason for all of this. First, I am going to be teaching some online courses later this year and I needed some insight and instruction on how to do this in the most effective manner possible and the education courses should help me in that department. It’s been a few years since I’ve taken a teacher education class. I need the refresher.
The plant propagation course, on the other hand, is part personal interest (I love plants and have wanted to learn certain propagation techniques for many years) and part research for a project I’m working on. Ultimately it satisfies the “mad scientist” in me and my want to create my own hybrids. The gardeners among you will “get it”.
So when was the last time you were in school?
