Part#2 Midterm Prep
Your midterm will be a 15 minute Hangout  session with Jeff.  During this time, we will…
A) review  the tasks you completed so far and discuss any challenges, confusions, or ideas you have about the tools used

B) discuss which materials and skills you would like to develop during the second part of this course.  While I will still introduce a few new tools and resources in weeks 9~14, most of that time will be spent  having you develop CALL-related materials for your current and future teaching environments.

C) share any other thoughts and questions about this course and how to make the second part of it as useful as possible for you.

Please make sure your Task Checklist is up-to-date by April 20.  

Midterms will take place between April 21~26.  You can schedule your Hangout time in the TES531Midterm Scheduling Page by clicking ‘Slot me in’ and entering your name in your desired time slot.  Please sign up for  a time slot by April 18.  If none of those time slots work for you, please email me as soon as possible and make alternative arrangements.
