Just finished marking 95 assignments I wanted to finish before students in my Intro to Philosophy class do their final exam tonight. It’s nice having a marking lull for a few hours. Then right back at it (but since the exam finishes at 930pm I think I’ll wait until tomorrow morning to start marking!).
@chendricks Yeah, get a good night’s sleep for that philosophical mind-bender that awaits you.
@mareklach Indeed! I have 105 final exams to mark in the next 10 business days, with two long essays each and a bunch of short answer questions.
@chendricks Oh my... :-)
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
