Future, Past

Was teaching at Algonquin College during the summer of 1992. Both administering and developing a distance education course in Commercial Law. Thought I was also in a classroom, but can’t remember.

What is remembered is walking past the computer lab, on more than one occasion. Standard being stand alone computers at the time. Seeing all these students, whose first language was other than English or French, trying to teach each other computer skills, in English or French.

Cooperative spirit in the interest of collective betterment. That was one image.

People coming to a common point of reference, in this case a linguistic point of reference, in the interest of collective betterment. That was another image.

No cultural silos. That was yet another image.
