At The Sweet Setup:
Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.
Today’s victim, er, interviewee:
I’m Dr Terry Portis, college director, psychology professor, reader and technology enthusiast. I manage a department that is made up of about 200 faculty and 4,000 students.
I also teach one face-to-face psychology class each semester, do some online teaching and curriculum design, serve on three boards, and teach adult Sunday School at my church. I do workshops and write articles for college faculty and administrators on doing better presentations, using technology to be more productive, and how teaching is impacted by aging and disabilities. The teaching and writing part of my life does not feel like work at all, I have fun doing it and sometimes lose track of time for hours. The administrative part – yeah, that feels like hard work (but meaningful).
