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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
