quoteAt a dinner for a famous Visiting Author..., the guest of honor, who was sitting next to me, asked what I did on campus. I rattled on briefly about “advising faculty” and “online pedagogy.”

Listening carefully, the Visiting Author’s eyes cleared after a moment. She pulled back from me slightly as if to get a better look and said, “You mean distance education?"—as if I had been struggling to find a euphemistic way of explaining that I handled the campus’s medical waste."
