You haven’t been hearing from us much lately. Now, with the spring Wilderness Bushcraft Semester just over a week away, I’ll explain why. I’ve been busy migrating our student workbooks and our assessment system from paper to digital. This means that starting this spring, students on the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester can document everything from their course via Google Docs on a laptop, tablet, or even a phone.
It’s another step in the right direction and it allows those with a vested interest in our programs (university academic partners, the veterans administration, etc.) to get their own copies of student work with a few clicks of a mouse.
This spring will be the official rollout of the new system. While there are sure to be a few bumps in the road as there are with any new system, I’m excited to raise the bar and keep pushing things forward. The big winners will be the students, as this should streamline the process and save them time.
