CPD Last Days

It's been an awesome experience participating in this programme. It is for me a demonstration of the grace of God, for which I am profoundly grateful.These last days has been tremendous beginning at Monday, 15th June with Leadership and Innovation which was practically and well taken by Prof Ann-Louise de Boer. The various tests and field practice after lunch remain an important training I have been privileged to receive in life. Integrating the HBDI into leadership is one dynamism Prof Bothma and team has built into the Carnegie CPD training to make the next generation of African librarian a whole professional and total man lacking in neither skill nor human and material management.The June 16 interlude celebrated as National Youth Day in honour of Hector Pieterson and other school children who lost their lives to the famous 1976 Soweto Uprising; one would think would make a break, but never to be. Thanks to the assignment that came to my knowledge second day in Pretoria courtesy the erudite and "Mummily" Dr. Marlene Holmner herself. You can't believe I didn't step out of Protea hotel Manor, barely left my room for some consultation and cross fertilization of ideas some doors away. In fact, don't laugh at this, I DIDN'T shower that day, so cold...Now, action resumed on wednesday. VRE with Dr Pienar, van Wyk and Isak was already waiting to carry into a new realm of knowing. Stepping into the universe of HubZero, courtesy, University of Purdue, I can now do my wiki, blog and all those stuffs, even social things there with fellow researchers. I could here Lillian Akakwansa, that beautiful lady from Uganda, lamenting why they have not introduced us to this sweet platform since May when we came.Well, my group assignment is waiting, presentation on Friday, I have gotta go to face it squarely...Bye for now
