One Year

Entry 332 for Thursday March 11, 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? Met with Snehitha about a website; #TC3045 class with guest Kent Beck; #TC2005B student meeting with Joshua; #TC3045 meetings with students Héctor and Julio; #educoffee with Miguel; Amdocs meetings with #TC2005B students.
  2. What did you enjoy? The session with Kent was wonderful starting with him entering the Zoom room playing his banjo. The brilliant idea to have the students record their sessions of TCR (thanks to Alex and Iván for setting up the repo) led to great interaction and questions from Kent to the students as much as them to him.
  3. What did you find difficult? This is exam week for these #TC3045 students (and “challenge week” for my #TC2005B groups) and it was difficult to pull their attention for other items but they definitely played attention when Kent joined which makes it all good.
  4. What has changed? Today marks the one year anniversary from our institution announcing going fully online. This was the Thursday after the Salvador Alva “Goodbye address” on our campus where I had the chance to speak with him and some other high level executives. I knew it was coming but didn’t expect the next day. This would be my last full day working on campus up until whenever I do return to working on campus.

Leaving this take on Barenaked Ladies’ “One Week”, from the Stephen Colbert show.
