First Week Reflections

Socrates is quoted as saying “The unexamined life is not worth living.”  These are strong words and a powerful idea.  One of the major goals of the Teaching Tip series is to encourage faculty members to undertake regular critical self-assessments.  For the most part, the tips are not intended to be prescriptive, but are based on the belief that with critical reflection and the input of students and colleagues, teaching can be both more enjoyable and of higher quality.
