My trip represents the fifth time I have come to Colorado Springs for the residency requirement for my program, Doctorate of Computer Science, Emerging Media. It is hard to describe the value of having such a gathering like a conference where so many students and faculty fly in to have a meeting of minds. Blending the online activities at a distance and reinforcing relationships make learning more sacred.
On Wednesday morning, President Bob Lally, CTU Chair of Homeland Security, outlined new changes planned for future Symposia at CTU. The goals sound exciting to increase interaction within the programs face to face. Being able to meet more Doctorate of Management students is appealing to me, especially those who are in the Emerging Media track. The fact that the meetings will stay in the Springs and be held in the Cheyenne Mountain Resort is really exciting. The NUTN2010 Leadership Summit was held at the Resort and I will never forget eating s'mores by the outdoor fire pit with my co-presenters, Anne Keehn and Mark Resmer who passed in 2011.
