Had a great time at ICTCM 2017 in Chicago. And I learned a lot. Between Maria Andersen’s opening day keynote and Eric Mazur’s Saturday sessions I feel that I am making good progress in some areas, but there is still room for improvement. My “lecture time” is very active and engaging, but I feel like I need to turn it up a bit and allow my students more time to experiment and discover. I need to use assessment FOR learning.
I heard from many instructors who are using our (Sullivan/Woodbury) Interactive Statistics and having great success. It gives students more responsibility for learning, and has changed the ways that the class is taught. We have quite an ambitious plan for 2.0, and cannot wait to share the details.
Finally, it was great to catch up with so many friends and well respected colleagues. I learn so much from you all and you motivate me to be my best. I am thankful to have such a terrific personal learning network.
Next week I will summarize the sessions I attended and the trends I noticed.
