This morning starts the glitter conference today.
The focus is on green and sustainable computing. There is a pretty good group from the representative schools. Fortunately I was able to travel with colleague Michael Hurley. We had an easy trip, and enjoyable night last night with some guys from Kalamazoo College.
This morning is getting under way with a large group session about sustainability and the evolution of computing on the college campus.
Key point of the intorductory remarks was to provide answers to the problems of teaching and learning not provide solutions disconnected from the reality of learning and research.
Also, how can we organizationally change from constantly deploying change and cycles and move to working with change to affect in the life of the college community.
Question – is our work to support technology or engage the community in the work they do?
