Tuesday Teaching Talk is a regular feature which, as the name implies, is an opportunity to talk explicitly about teaching (and learning) in the practical and philosophical sense that happens on, you guessed it, Tuesday. Hold on to your hats. The CAST coordinators (yes there are 2 of us) are tasked with supplying TTTs to you. Look for questions, videos, tips, etc. Enjoy!
The semester is near its conclusion. Have you hit the wall (like a marathon runner) or are you more geared up than the start? Enough of my questions, how about you ask some. For FDW this year, we’re toying with the idea of having an session in which we answer our burning questions about teaching at HW (and CCC) and hopefully have them answered by one another or an expert. Here’s one to get the ball rolling.
When a student repeats a course after getting a D or F, does the new (presumably better) grade trump (for GPA calculation purposes) the old grade or do both factor into the final GPA?
Post yours here so we can include them in this session. Of course, if someone knows the answer, he or she is more than welcome to answer here. Thanks and remember that today’s the last CAST meeting of the semester in 1046 and next Thursday will be the last CASTivity, occurring off-campus.
