I am sitting in an afternoon session with our PRMT fellows down at UPENN and all of a sudden realized that it is Friday…where did the week go? I missed my Friday deadline last week and am determined not to miss another one! The past week has been a particularly busy one for all sorts of reasons and I have been leap-frogging from one meeting to another and feeling a bit disjointed. In this spirit, I present a Friday 4 with no real common thread or theme…sort of like my week. 😉 I hope that you find at least one of the pieces interesting and worth discussing with a colleague.
- A colleague asked me for some resources on motivation and relevancy in the classroom and I shared the following with him: 25 Ways to Cultivate Intrinsic Motivation
- With all of the craziness in the world of late, I was particularly struck by the message in the following post: In an Era of Conflict, Healing the World One Classroom at a Time.
- Not the most in depth analysis of the issue, but I did like some of the potential discussion points that the following post triggered in my mind: No, You Can’t Do ‘Extra Credit’
- Less Teaching and More Feedback? is a short post from former LC faculty member, Grant Wiggins (@grantwiggins) that crossed my Twitter feed today that I found thought provoking.
