This year I’m delighted to be teaching in the school for the first time. I’m most grateful to Michael and Allison who have welcomed me into their courses. It’s a real pleasure to be team teaching with Michael, working together each week with the MTP first years in Thinking about Learning. In addition to getting my head around new content, I’m reading and thinking a lot about reflective practice and engagement for deep learning.
I have found this article from the Chronicle of Higher Education, titled How to Make Your Teaching More Engaging, a useful reminder of things that make a difference when it comes to engaging students.
Be great to hear what’s influencing your teaching this semester.
