So, we'll see. I'll poke around at the site and figure out just what it is that IS happening on December 7. If we are going to be creating and making things (and I have a pretty broad definition of what "things" might mean!), and then sharing the things we make, that would be GREAT, and I'll definitely stick around for the ride.
But if it's just reading and discussion, I'm already pretty maxed out on reading and discussion.
Thinking about this did make me glad for the emphasis I put on making and creating in the very first class activities in my courses, and I will think about that even more carefully for next semester. I definitely want the students to feel like their creating and making things and then sharing them is the whole reason for the course... because it is! :-)
Immerse yourself in a project, and create something new.
