No change with change

Posted on: January 26, 2013

I have to deal with change on a daily basis. By change I do not mean the coins in my pocket but trying to make a difference by making things different.

I have to plan and implement change so much on a systemic basis that sometimes I forget about change on a personal one.

I have resumed facilitating my favourite course, MLS125 (Planning, Articulating, Leading, and Sustaining Change with ICT) in the new semester. However, I lost my favourite room on campus as it is due to be repurposed this year.

Everything was in place in that place. I had learning stations, support structures, and equipment honed to a state that only two years worth of course tweaking could bring.

Then the room got taken away.

Instead of grieving its loss, I took this as an opportunity to try something new. So I now have a mobile gaming lab that I push around in a cart. I bring it to my new classroom, set things up before class, and take things down after.

Doing this gives me a renewed appreciation for what I used to do as a teacher trying to push boundaries. It might also model the effort (or effortlessness) of doing this to participants of my course.

I am reminded that I am a change agent every time I push that cart.
