Video Killed the Radio Star

Entry 232 for Tuesday December 1, 2020

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Woke up at 6:30; #F1007B last class with guest speaker Cindy González; attended parts of “Teach-in Against Surveillance“, a Fundraiser in Defence of Ian Linkletter;  student meeting (#TC1033) with Mauricio; generated a new #TechEduTips video about how to recover old documents for my friend Alan Levine; learned some techniques for removing video of students in a video version of Cindy’s talk that I hope to release publicly.
  2. What did you enjoy? A real feeling of comradery with friends and colleagues in the chat during the Teach-in talks today. I was only able to see most of the opening panel and will carve out time to see the talks by Audrey Watters, Jesse Stommel, and Cory Doctorow at some future time. Also a wonderful time in class with Cindy’s talk. We hope to release that talk soon after checking a few details before release. Learning about more video editing is fun.
  3. What did you find difficult? Energy levels low, trying to help students that do not (or can not?) respond.
  4. What has changed? I have decided based on viewing the documentation I need to gather and some missing items to not apply for the “national classification”. I am already classified as Associate Professor under our older regional program but should do this sometime. Talking with a colleague, I may do some videos about how to reach the requirements for at least associate level and perhaps checking if I can cover the assistant and full professor levels.
