Spring class work:

Read chapters three and four of our course textbook. Detailed explanations provided for learner, contextual, and task analyses. Also took away some great ideas for the training reorganization project. Submitted two response papers and draft version of learning philosophy.

Read:

The secret lives of codebreakers: The men and women who cracked the Enigma code at Bletchley Park.

Finished the last of this book over the weekend. The Bletchley story fascinates me, particularly how thousands of individuals were able to keep their war involvement hidden from their families.
