I'm working with conversational glue at the end of June 2021. I made an audio clip while reflecting on things I've done that are going to stay with me long after the annual audiomo challenge passes into the next year.

I TEACH JOURNALING to Media Writing students and for the next three years I plan to enhance that creative process with a few specific tips. One is to require a double spread page of speech bubbles and another task is to show a page that emerges from text input on a keyboard. I believe the Media Writing Journals I will review will have greater creative content at the end of the semester.
THE CONCEPT OF IDENTITY enjoys deep coverage in several creative media programmes I teach. During the 2020-21 time frame, I hope to connect several facets of identity to both the academic programme on the Clonmel Digital Campus and to the 2021 Clonmel Junction Arts Festival.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME working in remote locations so I'm grateful for the ease of use I get with my durable Brydge keyboard. It connects to my Note 9 the moment I switch it on with no requirement to push a button or select a setting.
I HAVE RENEWED my focus on collaborative workflow now that the spring semester has started. At the moment, it means reviewing items in the PR Stack, a practical guide to tools and workflow edited by Stephen Waddington.
