T-shirts on the Clothesline Project at Georgia College.

Every October on Front Campus, colorful and thought-provoking T-shirts are clothes-pinned to roped lines, flapping in the wind—airing the dirty laundry of violence against women. This year, the vibrant menagerie commemorates 15 years of a women’s program at Georgia College.

October is breast cancer awareness month, so wear pink and join us at noon at the A&S fountain for a brief ceremony to honor those who have been touched by breast cancer.  This will be followed by a walk around campus. Take a picture of yourself and colleagues and post it to Twitter with #GCwearspink. We will have buttons, bracelets and ribbons for participants and gift bags for survivors.

Using copyrighted materials in the classroom and on Georgia View can be fraught with uncertainty. When can you use a video? Can you make copies of an article you found on Galileo? Do you have to cite every image in your instructional PowerPoint? Faculty are encouraged to drop in to the Russell Library and consult with a copyright expert.

Tuesday, October 22

Library 241

Drop in between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Have you tried a walking meeting? Innovator Steve Jobs was well known for conducting conversations on the move. He knew bodies in motion have more active minds. And a recent Stanford study found the same: Walking boosts creative thinking. Try introducing a healthy new habit:

Strolling status updates. Walking meetings are easiest with a small group. Start by inviting an employee or your supervisor on a jaunt for your weekly status meeting. Jot down agenda items ahead of time on a small notepad to keep the meeting professional and on track.

Conference call circuit. A wireless headset means you can take phone meetings on foot. You’ll gain privacy you can’t get at many workstations, plus mood-boosting sun and fresh air.

Coffee to go. If you can’t motivate meeting attendees away from the table, you can sip and stretch your legs in nature. Take a brisk lap; you may find it might be even more invigorating than a cappuccino.

Take a look at today’s schedule: What meeting can you make mobile?
