I'm excited to announce that my new column is now live on EdSurge's website.
The purpose of this column is to:
- Recognize that teaching is both an art and a science. Share the scholarship of teaching and learning that is helping to inform our teaching practices, while recognizing that our experiences are diverse and unique. Just like an artist, sometimes we learn the rules, so that we can then break them for a given purpose.
- Focus on the joy and the pain that can come from the pursuit of good teaching. Celebrate with you when things go well and mourn with you when they do not turn out as you wished.
- Provide guidance from my experience as a teacher and faculty developer and reach out to others when my expertise is lacking.
