I will be presenting at Pennsylvania State University on Monday the 22nd. If you are in the vicinity I'd be pleased to invite you to come. Just let me know. Also, if you would like me to do a presentation of I'm Awesome, But I Have My Limitations at your school as part of that trip please do let me know. Given that I will be in Pennsylvania already, such a visit could be likely arranged for you at low cost. Ron
Julian - I know you joined a little while ago, but I think I forgot to give you a welcome message!
Thanks for joining the Freshman Transition Network. The network is, and always will be, a "work in progress". Your input and ideas will play a big role in making this a useful and interactive site. Please let me know if you have ideas.
Be sure to read the "Read 1st" tab. I think that will give you a good idea of how to maximize this new network.
Check out the "Your School" tab. This gives people a chance to leave information about and a link to their school's Freshman Transition Program. I think this could help schools connect with one another.
Check out the "Groups" tab. I would recommend making a group for your school. Then you can invite other teachers/educators from your school to join the network and your group. Your group can then become a "community forum" for teachers from your school.
Consider "friending" the other members of the community. That will make sure that the community truly is a community. You do this by going to someone's page and clicking Add as Friend, which is beneath their profile picture.
Most importantly, though, your input, ideas, blogs, comments, and questions will benefit all the other members. Feel free to become a regular blogger or poster. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
