Hi, I’m Rand Park, a faculty member here at the Carlson School, and I’ve taken over the Instagram feed today, the first day of Spring Semester 2020. When I’m done teaching and have returned home, the bow tie comes off but the work isn’t done. Fortunately, we have an amazing IT staff and infrastructure at Carlson, and I can be very productive at home. In the last year or so we have transitioned to Canvas as our LMS (learning management system). I post all of my lecture slides, course readings, and other materials on Canvas. No textbooks 📚 to buy or lose! Carlson also has an amazing online production team and instructional designers for both fully online and hybrid courses. Swipe right to see a screen grab from the infamous McCormick pepper case, now recorded in high-definition!

Hi, it's Rand Park signing off from my Instagram takeover. I'll leave you all with one of my favorite features of the Carlson building. On the fourth floor, the elevator lobby area has a soaring glass roof that is often filled with light. Most of the time folks are bustling to and fro, mostly looking down or straight ahead. From time to time I remember to look up and appreciate this bright, airy space. As we all go back to the grind tomorrow, let's all remember to take a moment when we can to look up, or around, and appreciate the light, the important people in our lives, and the incredible opportunities that most if us have, despite our quotidian annoyances. All best for a blessed and productive 2020!! Rand Park, Senior Lecturer Carlson School of Management On insta @rand_park
