With the academic year coming to a close, it’s a great time to look back over the year and take stock of not only everything you’ve accomplished, but also everything you’ve learned, especially as a teacher. It’s easy to catalog all of the work done in the classroom, like the lessons planned, lectures delivered, and exams graded, and to have a sense of how your students progressed through the semester. It’s less straightforward to realize how much you have learned from teaching.
We have started collecting stories and reflections from graduate students and faculty across disciplines to showcase the skills that can be learned from teaching, and why the skills teachers develop are valuable.
Please help us by filling out this form and responding to three quick prompts with your thoughts on what you can learn from teaching, We’d love to feature you!
