Retiring on Sept1!

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

So, at the end of this month I will be  retiring from Langara, where I have been teaching for many years. I will miss the daily interaction with colleagues and students, but am looking forward to having more time for expanding my horizons and learning new things.

This Summer I participated in Stephen Downes and Rita Kop's  on-line 'Critical Literacies' course (#CritLit2010) - partly with a view to increasing my networking skills, and also attended the CADGME conference on Computer Algebra Systems and Dynamic Geometry in Math Education - to get some idea of whether there are still any legs left on either my GX2 java project or the College Math Resources website.

But I am also looking forward to deeper reading in some of the other areas that I occasionally touch on here - and maybe even eventually coming up with something useful to say!
