Learning from each other

We’ve plugged The Teaching Professor blog on this site before, and I want to point you to it again.  In the latest post, Maryellen Weimer talks about how much faculty members share with each other when it comes to teaching tips, pedagogical strategies, classroom practice.  I will add that we talk to each other about individual students, too: their successes, their troubles, the help they need.
One of the joys of teaching at a teaching-intensive institution is working with faculty members who are, almost without exception, committed to being the best teachers they can be, for the sake of the students.  Good teaching is the top priority at a college or university at which you’re teaching four or more classes per semester.  Most have teaching and learning centers that help you to develop as a teacher, and all have concerned colleagues who will be resources for you as you hone your teaching skills.
