I had a call a few minutes ago. My personal mentor. Professor in Art and Design and just about the best lecturer I have ever known...
He is heading overseas for a month to London to chair a conference, and he is hunting for someone to replace his lectures while he's away.
He's a very highly regarded lecturer in his field (in QLD). AND HE'S ASKED ME TO APPROACH MY FACULTY to see if they will release me for a month to attend his classes while he is away!!!!! As in a cross-institutional transfer!
I would be paid handsomely. And have inner city accommodation, such as it is, provided (suitable for Tockie, too). It would only be undergrad teaching - so nice and easy. And it would only be for a month....
Whether I go or not, I am THRILLED that the lecturer I think of as 'GOD' would even consider me as a replacement for a few weeks.... I still think of this guy as the *ants pants* in terms of design AND lecturing!
I SO want to do it!!!! Wondering the best angle to present it to my faculty????
SO - that's me. What about your exciting and happy news???????
