Week # 8 – Mid- Semester Assessment
Welcome to the Mid- Point of the Semester!
The Mid-Semester Portal has been unlocked!
Here we are at the midpoint of our CT-201 semester! Time… goes by fast! (unless you have watched the movie “Intersteller” then time whilst in space turns hours in years! A great movie to see if you need a mid-term break 🙂
Class video recording from 10/26:
A Few Important Due Dates to Watch:
- Final Term Paper Bibliography / Sources – due 10/19 – 10/26 – if you need more time, that is OK, this can be a work in progress, you can always add more sources as you go – please be in touch and let me know when I can expect to receive it.

What new skills have I developed, cultivated and or displayed regularly?
How does this new information / skill sets contribute to my weekly progress?
How can I assess my performance through a self-reflection in this class?”
“How am I doing in CT201”? What grade am I maintaining / producing through the quality of my work / participation in the class as a whole?
The assessment part is very tangible and clear as we have been producing results over the last 7 weeks in the form of written discussions, commenting, comment responses, class participation in the chat during the class-time, attending class, handing in required assignments, being in communication about our work / progress. Lets take stock, follow me below,

The Course Syllabus Page share assignments deadlines and also updates deadlines as needed 🙂
In fact, before we move into the next phase of our course, I want to take a week and reflect upon what has already been accomplished, as well as take accountability for what might be missing and in need of improvement. Let’s
