Kickoff Meetings

Entry 297 for Thursday February 4, 2021

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? Up at 5am; preparing for courses; campus kickoff meeting; school of Engineering and Science kickoff meeting; #educoffee with Miguel and Pablo; taxi-dad duty for Alex; laundry and dishes; more course prep and checking on MCY students; #EdTechEthics twitter chat; fell asleep early.
  2. What did you enjoy? The kickoff meetings were good. I saw much more emphasis on a #PedagogyOfCare which made me happy.
  3. What did you find difficult? Still adjusting to getting into a pattern for work.
  4. What has changed? Classes do not start until Monday but with those kickoff meetings, it definitely feels like the semester has started. I hope that gets me into a rhythm.
