The past few days were englightening. I had a chance to meet at length with a variety of very interesting people, including cohorts, faculty and mentors. I feel very much enganged in a new learning opportunity. There is such a wide variety of talent and resources available with these new relationships. Unlike a lot of first time meetings, this meeting had a long term commitment associated with it. There is a four year learning exercise tied to these relatinships, with potential for many more years to follow. It was really good to see the passion of the faculty. They are all on purpose and are so willling to share and engage with us. I am looking forward to following up with the faculty to see how we can estabilish a brain learning technology center for UNT.
