What is our time worth?
On the other hand - it's not just the students time that is important - it's mine also. I am trading hours of my life to be there and do te teaching. Away from my family - staying in hotels and waiting in airports - I require 'full engagement' from the students to make it seem all worthwhile to me. Sometimes, as on this trip - I go for a couple of days without seeing my family - although thechnology helps - tonight I had wireless internet connection available to me so was able to video-chat them on my laptop. Took this screenshot as they signed off. They will no doubt chastise me for publishing it here - but it's late and I am ovbviously not thinking clearly. Time for sleep.
