When you take a break it can be a bit of a jolt when you come back.
Learning should be in safe spaces.
Back to face to face teaching with the final group of students. Kind of.
Away from Zoom and back to people.
Academics have lots of jobs within their jobs. Sometimes the biggest job is teaching, and sometimes not.
Some of our students are back in the labs, physically, and I get to teach them again.
Also climbing on the Gower.
To feel less locked in we’re spending more time in virtual worlds.
It’s in the title. We’re going to try and climb outdoors by the sea in a short dry spell, and talk about some of the truths of teaching on the way.
I’ve been working with a bug in the Android version of the Daily Anatomy app that meant the app didn’t update with a new question each day for some users that maybe didn’t use their Android devices much. I think I’ve fixed it – fingers crossed and I’ve sent the new version to Google’s Play Store.
I also introduced a big problem for users with older versions of Android by adding something new, but I think I’ve fixed that too. If the app crashed when you tried to start it and you’re using a version of Android older than 4.4.4 try the new version in the Play Store. Hopefully it will start up and run now.
The code is a mess. But it works.
I’ve been writing new questions over the summer, filling in some gaps and rounding out the collection a little. All the new questions I add will pop up in both versions of the app.
I hope it’s helping! Andy’s learning from it, so that’s a start.
