Reflecting back on the day: Research Methods preparation

I spent most of the morning preparing my last Research Methods course. I spent the morning grading exercises I had assigned, checking what I had received or not and organizing materials for the class. One of the things I wanted to do to wrap up the geospatial section was show Orbis and RomeLab as different examples of how one can make arguments with spatial tools.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but my teaching works a lot better if I prep right before class. I like to think through the discussions we will have as I walk into work and then prep the class. If I have an early morning class then I get up extra early and prep so it is fresh.
