If you’re like me and have a tendency to re-invent the wheel every semester then the current #TeachingTuesday series will help us both. Here you’ll find the second in a series of semester course schedule templates which you can fill in with the specific dates of your course, readings, and assignments (or whatever the hell else you want to fill it in with–you do you, rockstar). Last week’s template covered the traditional MWF format of three classes per week at 50 minutes each. This week’s template is for the TR power hour or any class that is two days a week for 75 minutes. Later in the series will be templates for a once-a-week, three hour class, a four-week condensed session, and an eight-week condensed session.
Of course, you may need to make edits to the template depending on if your institution has different holidays than mine. For instance, my undergraduate institution always cancelled classes the Monday after Easter while my graduate institutions have not. Tweak as needed.
In other news, I’m beginning to brain storm #TeachingTuesday materials after the template series. I’m thinking of including successful assignments from previous courses along with some other resources but I would love to hear what you would like to see on Tuesdays. Leave a comment!
