Tuesday Teaching Talk (TTT)

Tuesday Teaching Talk is a regular feature which, as the name implies, is an opportunity to talk explicitly about teaching (and learning) in the practical and philosophical sense that happens on, you guessed it, Tuesday. Hold on to your hats.  The CAST coordinators (yes there are 2 of us) are tasked with supplying TTTs to you.  Look for questions, videos, tips, etc.  Enjoy!

A few quick adverts first:

1) There is no official CAST meeting tomorrow due the to extra Tuesday in January,
BUT, feel free to come to 1046 between 2 and 3 for…

CAST Drop-in!

Find some tidbits for you: the teacher, the scholar and the person!

2) CAST is looking for volunteers to open up their classrooms for Peer Observations.  Look out for an e-mail very soon.

What’s your policy on cell phones?

  1. Utterly disrespectful. This guy gives instructors a bad name. Apparently he’s not heard of the golden rule: Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
    His actions have the pungent abuse-of-power stink.
    Regardless of how many times that cell phone had gone off, regardless of how many times he may have told the student to turn it off, regardless of whether or not his union would protect him, this is simply a disgraceful act towards a student.
    There are so many other, and better, ways to handle this situation. Talk about a guy (sorry I can’t call him an educator or instructor) that doesn’t know how to plan or anticipate student behavior.
    He doesn’t belong in a classroom if this is how he deals with student issues.

      • If it is fake, or staged, then I must ask: What purpose does it serve other than to give educators a bad name?

        Keep these TTT posts coming, Mathissexy!
