A brief video about participation and the upcoming peer review

Here’s a brief update video I recorded this morning trying to clarify some things about participation and about the upcoming peer review:

Take a look at this and if you have questions or concerns, post them here!

    I did not receive an email about my participation so far. 🙁

      Oops! Let me double-check that and get back with you….

    Ok, I watched the video and I better understand about participating on Monday and Wednesday. Do you put stuff out a day early (like Sunday) to be read and absorbed? ! But when we are in our groups we can chat to each other every day (I’m talking about weekends and holidays), right? and still have our assignments turned in on time.

      Absolutely, yes. I try to kick off the discussions a day early– usually Sunday and Tuesday nights– so you can jump in early.

      But to prepare, all you really need to do is look at the schedule. I have some “TBA” things for later in the semester, but the schedule as it is right now is current. So it says what we will begin on Monday (or Wednesday), which means you can read ahead or otherwise start getting prepared before I post something to the discussion.

    This helps a lot to understand the structure of this class more than reading about it did! Thanks!

    Question: You said to start discussion on the day it says “Start”. However, the schedule says that we have to post a personal statement for peer review by the end of the day Friday, but it also says to start peer review Wednesday. So I’m confused–do we have to post a draft by the end of the day Wednesday or the end of the day Friday?

      That’s a good question, and I kind of realized as I was preparing the peer review stuff today that it might be confusing.

      Basically, I wanted to give folks a bit more time to work through their draft for the personal statement assignment. So if you are ready to start sharing your draft starting on Wednesday, then go ahead and post your draft and start commenting on the drafts of others. But if you need a little more time putting it together, I’m giving you until the end of the day on Friday. Be sure to get it in by then because if you’re late, I’ll dock you a letter grade.

      But like I said, this is an unusual situation. Normally, it’s still stuff begins on Mondays and Wednesdays!
