Learning new names takes two weeks. On the first day of class, I’ll mispronounce people’s names. Confuse people’s names. I’ll mix names between people. If you haven’t figured out, I’m the kind of person that will remember a face better than a name.
Starting the new college semester has been my focus the past couple of weeks. Going into week four, however, finds my class and I getting into a good routine. I can start to ease up and spread my focus on other projects and interests.
Oh, and the above image was a game I played with students to demonstrate classical conditioning. Good stuff.
