I had to observe a colleague’s online course today. He’s a very experienced teacher, very talented, he’s trying very hard but oy. Oy yoy yoy. It all looks extremely painful. I’d rather eat my computer than torture myself like this.
People, come back to the classroom. Do yourselves a favor.
And by the way, in breakout rooms all of the students switch to English even when they see that the department Chair is there observing. In the classroom, you immediately hear and ask them to go back to Spanish. In breakout rooms, it’s impossible to control. So you are wasting yours and the students’ time with this “remote learning” crap.
