From panic to productivity
Early today I was asked to substitute for a sick colleague in leading a two hour tutorial. The topic was very specific and physiologically based. It was not a topic that could be "waffled through". I accepted the challenge and then had to decide what to do. I had just over an hour to prepare. It was a nursing topic that I am familiar with but do not claim to have a deep knowledge of (certainly not at one hour's notice). I sat down quietly and pondered my predicament.
