Entry 480 for Friday August 6, 2021
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? Course prep; morning #educoffee with Oscar R. and Miguel; more course prep; zoom chat with Lanctharus and Hoots; annual performance review with Jorge R. (it went well); more course prep and information that one of my groups was closed; email about plans for gradual return-to-campus to start August 16.
- What did you enjoy? A really great conversation with Hoots (Andrew) and Lanctharus (Moises) who are long time (decade+) friends and leaders of the Alea Iacta Est gaming community we are part of.
- What did you find difficult? I am really worried about the effects (pedagogically, emotionally, health impacts) of returns to schools that are being announced across the state of Jalisco and nationally.
- What has changed? Another announcement about return-to-campus went out this evening. I’m not revealing any inside information as this went to parents/students/staff. My load went down so now I am just slightly over a regular teaching load for the semester but with a decided heavy weight in the first two thirds of the semester.
