The Mysteries of Scheduling

Change is constant here. Thankfully, I had already gained this insight from my last trip, which is why today's change is really no big deal to me.

Today I met with my TA and several representatives from my class (including Jackson, the student who met me at the airport last nite) to discuss how we could change our class schedule. Pulling five different cohorts together for my class presents some date/time issues and one aspect hadn't been addressed.

After much discussion—my new TA translated for me so I knew the issues covered—and based upon everyone's schedules, we have arrived at our class schedule (when I teach): Saturdays 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday nites 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. and one Wednesday, the 15th, from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. My last class will be on March 23.

Last nite when I arrived I learned my classroom—it must hold 122 students—would be on the campus of another university, but that Jackson would walk me to my apartment at nite. I was thankful for that accommodation. However, today David found an available classroom—a result, I think of moving the original Saturday morning class to evening—on the 8th floor of the same building where I taught in Dec and where the International Education offices are. This is very good news!

Tomorrow I meet my 122 students at 2:00 and we will spend SIX hours together!
