Frostbite Symposium Wrap-Up

I had a great trip to Alberta for the Frostbite Symposium. For my keynote I talked about using instructional design principles in designing outdoor education programming. There was a lively Q and A session at the end of the talk, which always feels good if you are speaking. At least some of the audience managed to stay awake!

It was a lot of fun seeing old friends and alumni. A huge thank you to Dragan Uzelac for housing me, feeding me, etc. during my stay. We had a lot of great laughs.

Since getting back I have been preparing for our winter courses. This has included moving a bunch of snow, getting the snowmobile ready, and answering a bunch of calls and emails.

One nice thing about returning home is the welcome you get from your neighbors. As I was out shoveling snow the ravens flew by and chatted me up for a bit, and the barred owl who was hanging around last fall sat nearby in a big white pine and watched me shovel.

In the photo is a homemade geared rope maker I saw at Frostbite. It is on my list of projects to build one.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
