Tuesday Teaching Talk (Thanksgiving Week)

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. It could be a question, an article or a tip to name a few options.

Now for today’s TTT.

It is Thanksgiving Week, so I’d like to thank you all for reading and rarely responding to the TTT’s this semester. 🙂

Here comes my cliche post of the semester.  I’m betting that there are many especially thankful faculty in our midsts, namely those who just submitted their 1st, 2nd and final portfolios (or post tenure if that’s due now).  Congrats!.  Besides that, what are you thankful for with respect to your teaching at HW?  In the quiet, thoughtful moments what is it about your time/life at HW that you’re truly thankful for?

Have a nice little break before the end of another speedy semester.  Gobble, gobble!
