Greetings, fellow Duck readers. I realize I’ve been MIA this semester – DGS duties and ISA-Midwest stuff took too much of my non-research time. Another factor in my absence, however: a Monday Wednesday Friday schedule. And, it sucked. Like large-tornado-near-my-hometown sucked. Today marks the last Friday class of the semester – thank god. Even though I should be getting back to research this morning, I wanted to write a little bit about why I think 50 minute/3 day a week classes should be banned in our discipline.
- Let’s take a lesson from the educators: longer class periods that do not meet as often have some advantages for climate and learning.
