  3. Copyediting updates

  4. Quarterly Lesson Plan Amnesty Drive
    1. About once a quarter we go through and make sure that all of the lesson plans that are currently listed as having an author really do have an author. If you have a lesson plan listed in this list, it’s simply because we have noted that you are working on the plan. If you no longer can/want to, that is OK – we just want to know! In this case please pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” @bethsoderberg over Slack – we’ll be putting this list up in today’s notes and one last time in next week’s meeting. (NOTE: lesson plans that were confirmed last week do not appear in the list this week).

  5. Questions & Announcements
    1. @skarjune asked about testing forms: “Do we need to formally fill out Testing Lesson Plans form in advance? Or can Instructors just do the Feedback forms afterwards?”. @bethsoderberg noted that the one that is for folks who are filling it out in advance is really geared to people who we don’t know yet, but that otherwise you can fill out the forms afterwards.
