Happy New Year!
Many people see this time of year as a time to rejuvenate different dimensions of their lives and commit to a host of resolutions. The confluence of a new year and a new academic term is an opportunity to reflect on teaching and consider ways to do things differently in the classroom. However, experience tells us that there are barriers to this process. Think about the following goals:
• Goal 1: I'd like to spend less time grading assignments.
• Goal 2: I'd like to motivate students to simply show up for class.
