2017 week 5 in review

Work

Met with a bunch of folks in IT to start planning how we will turn UCalgaryBlogs into an Official Service™, with all that entails. It’s going to take some time, but it’s a good move. Everyone is on board, so now we just need to figure out what that looks like.

Back in HQ, we had a really good team discussion, trying to start figuring out how to shift from emergency/reaction mode to more R&D projects. It’s going to take some time, but we’ve basically been told we need to be the learning technologies innovation hub for the university, and that’s going to be a pretty major shift.

PhD

Friday was a PD day at The Boy™’s school, so I took a personal day and we headed out to Sunshine. His first time snowboarding on a Big Mountain. My third. We took it easy and had a blast.
