If you are a fan of Monty Python, then this is a familiar phrase, and you know that when it is uttered it means that something truly different is about to happen – so hold on!

Here we are in the midterm slump, and I’m waiting for John Cleese to pop into my online course and utter that magical phrase. And, I’m pretty sure the students feel the same way. All courses, whether online or on-campus, have ebbs and flows…points of high energy, activity, and engagement, followed by periods of apathy and an overwhelming desire to hide or at least nap. What can we do to reenergize our courses, and jolt ourselves out of the midterm slump?

This Friday, join Jenna, Brian, and Joni as we share ideas for shaking things up at midterm.
