The Highs and the Lows of Teaching: How we hone our craft and grow each year
August 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Teaching is a new challenge every year. You may be teaching courses new to you or renewing courses you’ve taught before; you’ll certainly be engaging a diverse and changing set of students. Every teacher experiences the highs of teaching successes and the lows of classroom flops, and both provide a great opportunity to figure out what works and what doesn’t…and to reflect on next steps. What can we learn from such moments? What do students need? What might need to change? Join us for a practical reflection on the complexity of the classroom experience. You will gain ideas for documenting your teaching efforts, begin to tell the story of how you foster student learning, and take away strategies for turning flops into future successes.
