I wanted to take a few moments and share thoughts about my week at Oxford University (I'm still here though...so the thoughts will be brief--I want to enjoy my time and, no offense, would you rather be immersed in Oxford or blog?). I am thankful for Bellarmine for a variety of reasons, but I have found that my university believes in investing in their people. One investment opportunity is the McGowan Prize, a fully funded professional/faculty development trip for one week to Oxford University specifically to participate in the Harris Manchester College Research Institute. While I'm here I am exploring narrative (story) as an instructional strategy-so, I have spent a lot of time with "The Inklings" (mainly C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien). It is easy to forget that we think in terms of "story", organizations brand (or at least the good ones) around story, and story helps us escape from and deal with the chaos of the world. I have included pictures below of Christ Church Cathedral, the Eagle and Child (a famous pub hot spot for "The Inklings") and, of course, an image of a pub I visited last night to watch the thrilling England vs. Columbia match (England won on penalties). Enjoy and know that as I continue to wrap my mind around "story" I will be posting a series on the importance of story for organizations and institutions.

P.S.- I am a really bad photographer...
