penningtonsimon@fhda.edu

@Pawel: Squirrels, yes, but I was impressed by the vultures and giant spiders that have taken up residence too.
Pawel Szponar
18:34
GIANT SPIDERS? Okay, I'm out.
karen smith
18:42
Don’t worry! The hawks are great rodent control

18:49
Simon, mark my words - if my office is full of spiders when we return, I’m going to recruit you to exterminate them!

I have a hypothesis: The animals are losing their fear of people...based on 1 incident (hehe) this morning with a bird as I walked my neighborhood. ;-) It was as though it was checking me out as I walked. It kept looking at me and moving closer! Maybe there will be a whole generation of wildlife that aren't afraid of us!

Cognitive load = amount of working memory resources used. There are ways you can structure your course to reduce cognitive load. For example, by having similar beginning and ending times for assignments rather than greatly varying times.
