Friday the 13th has always been one of my favorite days.
Needless to say I don’t consider myself a superstitious person. I am the pet human of a black cat, and have stood under ladders multiple times when that was the best way to steady them.
Sometimes I am a little superstitious about my learning design. I don’t want to assign page numbers to anything until I’m sure it is at least ready for review. I don’t like recording audio until multiple people have signed off on the script. I usually input all the wrong answers to an interaction before I do the correct one.
I had one colleague who would not start a new project until cleaning out her desk, because she said it just put her in a better mind space think clearer.
What superstitions do you have that impact your learning design?
