This is a blog site that I use for a variety of purposes –

at the moment it’s a temporary holding place for the St David’s Society of Minnesota, a Welsh culture organization in the midst of making changes to its home webpage, and

it’s a site I use in  working with students in a “Teaching in Higher Education” course at the Center for Educational Innovation at the University of Minnesota, and

it’s a place to “think out loud” in writing about learning and teaching, life and literature topics.

  1. Love the cartoon “For a fair selection, everybody has to take the same exam: please climb that tree” and would love to know who the cartoonist was and where it originally appeared so I can give proper credit in a student presentation.
    Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
