Good Meetings

Entry 569 for Wednesday November 3, 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? Academic buddy for a block course in Puebla; academic day; EIC region meeting to introduce new division director Armando; technical team meeting for the Flipped Learning Network board; watched the #Oilers beat the #Predators.
  2. What did you enjoy? It was nice to meet a new colleague Apurv during my buddy time with his class in the morning. Turns out he was a post-doc together with Mahdi in Monterrey.
  3. What did you find difficult? The push to get everyone “back to normal” on campus seems real. This is stressful. I also received confirmation from the consulate that my assumption about travel into and out of Canada would be problematic for me.
  4. What has changed? I have a student in my new group with the last name (via his mother) of Bauer. First time ever.
