We have passed the autumnal equinox; leaves are changing colors; and classes started at the University of Washington for Autumn quarter. Summer is over.
The energy in class today was amazing. 100% attendance. Lots of positive group interactions. I’m excited to see how our community develops.
After talking with my youngest son about his current college experiences, I decided to create a Discord server for my class. After all, he thinks nothing of asking a question through discord but hesitates to use email or drop by office hours. So far 50% of the class has joined and there has already been an interesting post. It’s a new technology for me—but I like to experiment—so why not?
