Welcome to The Teaching Practice.
The purposes of our blog are to provide timely access to relevant information about teaching and learning in higher education, create a go-to space for UofL faculty to find resources, and foster a community of practice and active dialogue among our teaching colleagues.
Our faculty colleagues have been asking us for ways to keep up with the latest pedagogy, technology, and best teaching and learning practices. You will find all that and more here.
Our intent is to pilot this blog during Spring 2013 to assess its effectiveness for our faculty. While we want to share the information that interests you, we also want to encourage conversations about teaching and learning in higher education. Your feedback and participation will help us decide how we might best use a blog to enhance teaching and promote dialogue at UofL.
To learn more about the blog and how to make the most of the pilot, visit the About page at the top of the screen.
In addition to highlighting information in teaching and learning, we’ll have two monthly feature posts: “Innovative Teaching & Technology” to explore new teaching strategies and learning tools on the second Monday of each month, and “In The News” to connect you to current research and hot topics emerging in higher education.
The new semester is a fresh start — a great time to reflect on the previous semester and set some goals for this semester.
In this article, Anastasia Salter says she will be “staying away from major teaching overhauls and looking for changes I can stick with.” We think that’s a great idea. Check out her article for specifics.
Tell us what you think!
What are your resolutions for the new semester?
