Entry 133 for Monday August 24, 2020
The core questions:
- What did you do today? Preparing the layout for this week of #TC1028; #TC1028 session for group 91; chat with my #TC3045 student Oliver; #educoffee with Terri and Miguel; Community Building session with Maha, Mia, and Autumm; started listening/reading (Audible) “Thick” by Tressie McMillan Cottom; participated in my first #flipclasschat in ages.
- What did you enjoy? I have had both “Thick” and “Lower Ed” on my list to read for a long time and purchased “Thick” on audible sometime before covid19. I am really enjoying the essays and love to hear the book author reading her book. I have been following her work since an early DPL where she was a keynote speaker and we watched that live with my #TC2027 class. So many respected colleagues and friends have recommended this book (and “Lower Ed”), give that a consideration for your list.
- What did you find difficult? Again, this struggle to stay ahead of my review of the #TC1028 content in this English build of the course is a struggle. I want to be far ahead but I am taking care to not overwork. There are other pending tasks in my queue as well.
- What has changed? My system of requiring visits from my students is a practice for my semester long classes which are slowly disappearing with #Tec21. I need to find a good way to integrate that into the new shorter classes. Visits are always an option, but the mechanics is trickier with 5 or 10 week courses.
