Aaargh!

Which of the following unpleasant scheduling factors do you think pertains in my schedule this term?
A) Five days per week
B) An evening class
C) One day with three classes in one day
D) Back-to-back classes
E) Late Friday afternoon class
F) All of the above

If you guessed "F," of course you were right. And there's more!!

I now discover that I also seem to be required to be in two different places at once on Wednesdays at 2:30. Perhaps I should clone myself?? Or employ a time spell a la Hermione?

At least this last situation may result in a change that MAY improve one or two of the above. I don't know what one does. Laugh, I suppose.

ETA: Oh, and I forgot to mention the 7:30 am breakfast meetings every two weeks.

Laughs hysterically.

Yes, I have taught online. I did a lot of it when my mum was still alive and I was looking after her. And, in fact, it turns out that the solution to at least the conflict part of this disastrous schedule is being solved by switching out one section for an online section. It will be more work, as I plan some new material in that course this term and will have to build some online components for it, but at least I won't have the back-to-back classes any more, or the late Fri afternoon.

Last minute online is not fun! Sorry to hear that, but glad it makes those others easier.

I also feel some sympathy for your scheduler. I have made screw-ups like that (finally we got software to prevent it, but I did it by hand for years--for over 100 people). Glad it all worked out in at least partly bearable form.
