This will be the best term yet!
These students will be the best yet!
This will be the most productive term yet!
So, we started a new term at UB. Somehow we caught the Uni off guard by starting on 6 Aug. Who knew?
Here's the start:
- My assigned classroom is a very nice one- Yeah!
- The location is OK - Yeah!
- It seated about 30 people - Yeah! No wait, I have 174 students!!!
Not to worry, my colleague will fix everything.
He comes into my class to try to find a DIFFERENT time for the class to meet. Not much luck there, but maybe 1300-1500 on Tuesdays would work. We still need a classroom to meet for 174 eager, well, 174 students to meet. So I find myself and my class with:
- No classroom
- No meeting day
- No meeting time.
No Problem. All those things will sort themselves eventually. Sure.
Scheduling is a tough problem to solve. There are companies that make and sell scheduling software. Now if we could get the problem and the solution together in the same place.
