I chose the “Outside of the Box” depiction because it symbolizes, in part, what education assists me to do -facilitate team outside of the box creative solutions and seeing opportunties, yet we never really leave the box because our institutional systems dictate how far outside of the box we can think. Although technology has opened and transformed communication practices, such as writing, it also has created boxes, such my email “Inbox” which threatens to make me a slave to the notion of immediate communication.
I’m taking my 9th and 10th MET courses this semester. I work for the College of New Caledonia in the North Cariboo – Quesnel, BC. As an educational administrator the fun lies in seeking creative (Outside of the Box) solutions in challenging times that make a difference to students, staff and the community.
