A few ideas for summer

May 17, 2013

keep cool on the swimming pool The spring semester is over and summer is smiling at us around the (South) Bend. For some academics, that simply means a change of venue or a shift in the kind of work to be done. For others, the summer brings a great deal of flexibility and provides time to pursue new ideas. In Summertime and the livin’ is . . ., TCU’s Kate Marshall provides a “round-up of tools and tips” you might want to browse. If you’re the geekish type and you want to learn something new, take a look at  Codecademy. For some light reading, try 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People (Susan Weinschenk, New Riders, 2011). It’s a colorful book with two-page vignettes describing research about how people see, think, read … and each item includes a takeaway. Pick it up, read a couple of “things” and put it down — perfect for summer.

For a light finish, here’s a summer tune by the Jamies from 1958 (serious Boston accent, huh?).
