Midterm evaluations, new readings on teaching, and collaborative learning. And annotation.

Quick reads for busy minds:

From the Chronicle of Higher Education, a reflection on the new book How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching by Susan A. Ambrose et al., by Keysha Whitacker, faculty in English at Penn. State-Berks.

Also from the Chronicle, a reminder that midcourse corrections are possible, both for students and faculty.

Shared by Korinne Cikanek, an article on how the use of collaboration “between the library, the professional development office, and a campus-wide supplemental student learning calendar” can increase student success and retention.

Would you like to annotate any electronic document with your students, live, all together? Ok, go.
