Weekend College T&T

September 10, 2011

MetaTeachnition - a new word (that I made up) for you to know. It means to think about your (or anyone else's) teaching and what is going on in terms of the you, the students, the classroom environment, your lesson, etc.
    This is what you should be constantly doing now - focus especially on the people/ideas/organizations that are different from your experience. Do not judge them, learn from them!

Intros - me (Prezi - Redekopp) and you - why are you here, subject area and *tell us one interesting thing about yourself”

Cell phone/laptop etiquette -- wireless?

No textbook, but you might want an iTouch or similar wireless device

Grading standards - the search for extraordinary.

Angel, wiki, blog, email, office hours

Course outline and assignments - what’s this course about and what do I have to do to succeed?
