« Meeting the Faculty | Main | Pondering....Info Entropy »

Day One

It was a whirlwind. I was exhausted by the time I came back to my room.

I went downstairs before our set 3pm meeting time and there were members of the cohort everywhere - checking in, hanging out in the lobby, and swimming in the hotel pool. It was nice to put real live people with e-mails and photos online.

We offcially convened at 3pm with a general session with Dr. Brian O'Connor and did some Q & A. Then we shuttled over to the UNT Campus and attended a "meet & greet" with the faculty complete with wine and cheese.

Then we adjourned to a boardroom style space at the Info Science building for an overview of what the process would be. This was the "deer in the headlights" moment for a few of us. I must confess it suddenly seemed overwhelming.

Good questions and some calming by Dr. O'Connor helped. I think we are all going to learn in this process: students (the cohort) and the faculty.
