Education is not simple or straightforward. It is more than just going to class and delivering or receiving material. Teachers have a lot of questions about learning, but limited time to find answers. I want to help. My blogs are forums to discuss teaching and learning. What’s the best way to engage students and help them learn? I think about this all the time. The question makes great fodder to while away time and flex intellectual muscle, but I’d rather find the best answers and discuss them with passionate teachers–let’s talk.


– To help teachers be the best teachers they can be

– To help students be the best learners they can be

– To energize robust, sound, and useful scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL)

As an optimist, I know good teaching can inspire and energize. I enjoy taking large volumes of information and telling a cohesive story. Do you have little time for extensive reading of teaching journals or long lists of things to do? Are you unsure what the best, evidence-based solution is to your teaching problem? I hope to provide some answers.
