One of my fall semester courses met for the last time tonight: bittersweet. I loved EVERYTHING about this class. The assignments were FUN to write, and the readings were always engaging. BUT–the professor and my classmates–priceless! The culture of this class was one of exploration and taking risks in thinking; folks could share a nascent thought or raise a question.
Before we all got up to leave for the last time, we had a few moments of reflection, followed, of course, by a class selfie. HASHTAGwinning.
