I am so happy I chose to attend the seminar! The introductory track I was in proved perfect for my needs. I learned how to make a blog and practiced using it throughout the week. In terms of actual connections with my courses, the activities were very helpful in making me focus on my actual classroom practices.
Now, for my advice. Keep an open mind. The seminar allows you to engage in a very collegial atmosphere of sharing with colleagues from many disciplines. Ask questions and offer suggestions and comments.
