Change is as old as time…

Change is inevitable. Just when we get familiar and comfortable with a procedure or practice, it will change! Habits are hard to change. With the dawn of the new semester, changes will be expected of everyone. Changes in performance expectations in a class, new Blackboard features, and new study habits are examples of this inevitable change. Adjusting to the newness can create a feeling of discomfort for a short while.

Technology is an example of how changes will force us to learn new ways of doing most everything! Take a look at the video “Help Desk for Reading Books.” Then, see how similar we are to the monks depicted here.

How will you cope with the changes of the semester?

    Dear Proffessor Sawyer,

    I really like this subject about change. I had posted to this once but dont believe it sent thru. Before I could save it, my internet connection failed. So hopefully I am not duplicating.
    Change is the inevitable that seems to evolve dailey. I graduated in 1977, and school is much more different. It is giving me challenges to work harder to learn. To learn all over again is scary but also very exciting. I try to look at change as a way of becoming more successful in my life.
