A Dog...And His Third Grad School Lecture!

Sorry about not posting this piece the other day as we promised-we've had a few computer problems that we hope are resolved.

Anyway, do you all remember the first time I presented a lecture to the students in the MFA program at the Columbus College of Art and Design? If not, refresh your memory of this cataclysmic event here: www.boccibeefs.com/2010/10/has-grad-school-gone-to-dogs.html

Here's a photo of me and the class professor, Ms. Belland, during that first lecture, way back in 2010. As you'll see, neither of us has aged a bit!

I was asked back again this year to provide my learned opinion to Professor Belland's "Digital Culture" class, and I happily obliged.  Her students are creating blogs as part of their assignments, and naturally, she asked me to provide my insight into the blogging process.

To start off: Here's a shot of Parental Unit's materials that she considered "must haves" for this most recent lecture: my traveling water bowl, my treats, my toys...and a few things for her, too.

I thought I'd better do a preliminary check to see if each student brought their homework to class...

   And it doesn't hurt to make nice with the students one-on-one...

And it sure doesn't hurt to ask if there are treats involved again this year...well?

Here's a partial group shot before my lecture. As you can see, I'm deep in thought, but Professor Belland (far left) is smiling already!

And here's a class shot taken right after my remarks-the class is electrified as you can see - they practically carried me out on their shoulders!

Once again, we'd like to extend out thanks to Professor Belland and her class for so graciously hosting Parental Unit and me-we had a great time!

Well done! Where I teach, there's a big sign saying that dogs are not allowed on campus. How are people to learn properly without dogs around?

Awe, that's so sad! We love dogs at CCAD!
