I chose this picture because I love the contrast shown for the meaning of TEXT: it is a word with many meanings being applied to something most of us do every day on our phones. Better yet, we are asked to receive a text from the library with information. The old and the new meet via an old word used in a new way.
I am in my last term in the MET program and, along with 590, I am excited to finally take the course that first caught my eye when I was researching the program. Long ago, I majored in Classics with a minor in Latin. I studied linguistics as part of my ESL teacher training. I think this course spoke to me because it seemed most familiar as I read the various course descriptions!
I am instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Richmond, BC and live in South Surrey where I try to enjoy easy access to beautiful beaches and lovely walking trails. I am joining a choir this year to nurture my soul and taking a Pilates class to nurture my body and hopefully offset too many hours at the computer!
Looking forward to working with you all!
Good image. The “text” on the poster would have made no sense a few years ago.
I’m actually wearing a Kwantlen Polytechnic University tshirt right now. It was given to me at a leadership conference last year. Great shirt.
Enjoy the course.
I should really get one of those tshirts! Did you enjoy the conference?
Great to working with you again. A picture illustrates complexity of meanings of word text.
