Since coming back, it’s been genuinely quite difficult to muster the motivation to do work properly again, especially compared to the intensity with which we were all working towards the end of last year. Tonight however I took an enormous caffeine hit and plowed through lectures again. I don’t recommend dependency on any substance for studying, but it definitely helps sometimes.
Lectures this morning, with the focus of our SSC session being small group teaching - particularly the things that make it effective and its limitations, along with how you should deal with those limitations. In short, it takes an astonishing length of time to prepare any sort of teaching, particularly more involved group teaching.
