We want to make the best of this experience and therefore from the moment our group set foot in Johannesburg we have not stopped for a minute. Our day was full getting to know the campus and our new friends. We also immersed ourselves into the Seminal Readings, which is a selection of texts for the whole school to review and discuss. There is a topic for this year, which is “Challenging our assumptions”. We will be involved in this reading series for the next three days. We had our first group conversation today within our groups and tomorrow we will be joining the rest of the ALA community in their discussions and activities.
