The students have been slacking!

But then, so have we all. I hit my developmental biology students with the first evil exam of the term last week (I give them a couple of broad questions where we don’t have all the answers, and send them off to write a longish essay on their own time. It’s definitely the kind of test where regurgitation doesn’t work at all). Then also the last few days have been our Fall Break, a short interval with no classes which were added to allow the faculty a chance to catch up on their work and sleep, but which I squandered by gallivanting off to London where I got almost no sleep.

But they’ve got some stuff online.

I’ll crack the whip in class some more today and tell them to provide more blog fodder. If I don’t fall asleep mid-session, that is.
