Entry 024 for Thursday May 7, 2020
The core questions:
Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.
- What did you do today? Third day of morning meetings to work on our preparation of #TI1015 for August. In the closing session I was asked to present the video we prepared, see below for that video which is in Spanish. It went well but I was a little nervous presenting before 500+ people. Thanks to Jorge Welti and Genaro Zavala for giving us space to present today; #educoffee with Mahdi in the afternoon; meeting with Fabiola, Gerardo, and Abraham to discuss our preparation for #TC1030 that starts next week; #TI2011 class with guest speaker Sergio Villarreal and another round of “Name that Tune”.
- What did you enjoy? The presentation to colleagues went well and in general everything today. The guest speaker went really well, I haven’t spoken with Sergio in ages.
- What did you find difficult? I was a little nervous presenting our video to many people. I was worried about getting permission from all of my colleagues to publish the video publicly on YouTube but they all agreed. I was sure to ask each one individually to not put anyone into a peer pressure situation of feeling that they had to answer yes. It worked out well.
- What has changed? The guest speaker was good but I think my students want some more technical content in the presentations so we will look to adjust that some more.
