Weekly Work Log

As I’ve done in the past, I’m going to try to document what went down this week. Unlike the past, I’m actually doing this for an internal purpose so I think we’ll keep after it better. The challenge will be walking the line between giving enough context to make it useful to the 4 people who might be interested and making it too much of a hassle for me for 4 people. We’ll see how that plays out but history doesn’t look good.


This Week

    • We met with [VCU FACULTY NAME] and are about 60% done with this site. There is some solid options to expand it as OER focused on river ecology, student research, and public science.
