Dear Commons Community,
Today I finished my workshop with faculty considering doing research on technology-enhanced learning in higher education. I enjoyed having the opportunity to explore with them various possibilities. They were an excellent group and a credit to North-West University.
During the lunch break, I took a quick walk and had my camera with me. Above is a photo of a small herd of springbok in a field about a hundred yards from the library. Because there are several ponds on the campus and the Vaal River, waterfowl are common. There is a gaggle of about fifty white geese that are nesting near the library. Below are three of these geese on the entrance ramp leading up to the library. I have also seen from a window in the library monkeys and all types of colorful birds.
Tomorrow is Election Day in South Africa and the University is closed. I have been invited to a barbecue at one of the administrator’s homes.
