I took 6 weeks off from teaching online this term. The break was necessary. Everything about my 6 week break was refreshing. Teaching online really does involve an endless parade of daily requirements. More traditional classroom environments typically have breaks in the action or at least weekends. Working with students 7 days a week with no real gap between terms can be psychologically draining. After 6 weeks off from teaching, I picked up teaching a 6 week introduction level business class this morning. Mini term classes are an interesting format. 6 week classes include the same amount of content and work as a 12 week class, but the student only gets half of the time to get the work done. It should be interesting. I’m ready for the journey.
