More teaching advice?
I am looking for creative ideas to cover about two weeks of class next semester when I will be out west at two conferences. I have a 100-level class (gen ed), where I will have my TA show a video (that I show anyway) and will likely ask a colleague to do a guest lecture. My questions are: do you have other ideas? I also have a senior/grad-level class to cover during that time, so I am looking for ideas there, too. Other potential ideas I have are: on-campus lectures related to course (although this is unlikely to work for the upper-level course), or some kind of online content to keep them busy. Any thoughts would be appreciated. And yes- I am procrastinasting by planning for NEXT semester. I have a lot of trips planned (and potentially more will arise), so I am going to be in need of creative class-covering ideas! I should be in grading jail, but haven't started yet... Maybe tonight!
