Amanda and I arrived safely in New Orleans last night (amid a flooding advisory and a tornado watch)! We are looking forward to presenting on Sunday morning at the Teaching Professor Conference about our blog, Faculty Fridays.
When we began this blog two years ago we envisioned a community of Instructors helping each other become better Instructors. Our specific mission was to celebrate and nurture good teaching – which we define as teaching for learning.
So, let's do some celebrating!
We're thrilled to highlight the recipient of the 2019 Red River College Students' Association Teaching Award of Excellence.
Congratulations to Cathy Skene! Read more about why her students nominated her for this prestigious award here.
I particularly appreciated this reminder from Cathy: “As adult learners, they (our students) bring a great deal of knowledge with them. It's necessary to acknowledge and incorporate what they already know. We all learn from one another."
As I prepare for the fall, what a great reminder of my role as Instructor and learner. Thanks Cathy.
Sign in above and join us in congratulating Cathy!
