There’s light at the end of the tunnel …

I’d started the notes for this towards the end of last week, and then forgot to do anything with those notes!

Having finally got all the exam modules ready and prepared; found a few issues, fixed them, and then staffed our online support on the Saturday am – no students needed support submitting their 23 hour exams that started on Friday.

Of course, there are probably hidden obstacles that I can’t see … but, right now, it’s definitely feeling good 🙂

I’m now starting to think about moving forward, next semester is a bigger challenge than the assessment period – but, it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to.

Things I read during the week

  • Pivoting to Open Educational Resources – while aimed at South African Universities, it’s relevant to all. They’ve also included links to OER Africa – and other sites that are valuable not only for the OER aspects, but to get internationalism into the curriculum.
  • Staying Healthy – it’s so important to look after ourselves – Mandy gives some useful tips (the working from home article linked has handy tips – and I really hope that Marie is lucky enough to have that workspace)
  • Lockdown Learning Steve Wheeler is always worth reading – this is no exception. While aspects of behaviour management that he discusses are less likely to be a concern for higher education than for schools, “but there is still (and never will be) a substitute for empathetic, knowledgeable teaching input” applies to all.

And finally

I just have to share this! (Thanks, Jo Badge for sharing)
