No observation today. Will NOT be Wed or Thurs due to a field trip and my auditions, so IF I'm being observed it will be Friday.
@theartguy Gawd. I once got observed two days before winter break. And I do library instruction now in open spaces with professors involved and everyone able to see me, and it's nothing like the principal stopping by.
@Holly In this case the observation is because I'm in the running for Teacher of the Year.
So, no pressure.
@theartguy Congrats on that! But for real - no pressure.
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.
