I ended up taking a long break from a lot of projects over Christmas - this site being one of them. What did I do, instead of pontificating on workflows in higher ed? I went to Costa Rica for about three weeks, I went into the deep-end on a dataset I've been holding on to, and I endured the first-weeks of a new semester.
I also have the dubious honor of starting a new program from scratch - which means that I've sat in way too many meetings where we repeat the same information, describe the same problems, and imagine the same solutions.
But my head is back above water, and I've some new thoughts and suggestions for workflows for the coming year. So here we go :-)
