Graduate Teaching Community -- reflections on teaching
Haven't made a lot of entries in this notebook as I'm not teaching regularly at the moment, though am still attending meetings of the Graduate Teaching Community, a record of which can be found on our GTC blog. But today in GTC we are thinking about reflections on teaching, and starting with a little bit of journaling, so this seemed like a good place to do it.
Cass and Karolyn have started us off writing on a few pre-reflection questions:
Often I emphasize problem solving, while I feel my students tend to emphasize factual content as the goal, and de-value problem solving ability. It is this latter perception that I'm most challenged by, and how to change it. The other challenge I think on most is student ownership of content. Not sure I can really define that, I guess it's a feeling of mastery, or perhaps just familiarity with the content that's the goal.
