Eat better. Get more exercise. Feel more grateful. Take more yoga classes.
Yep, there are a lot of resolutions that we might try after January first. As educators, perhaps one for 2018 may involve improving your teaching skill set. There are simple classroom strategies like trying to get out from behind the podium more often or making more time for student to student interaction. There are the more digital elements of instruction, as well. The evolving tools and opportunities for students and teachers are rich with possibilities to deliver information, interact with peers, and interact with and create information. Start small. Maybe pick one from the several that are offered here? Or perhaps there has been something you would like to learn or do more often in your courses. Either way, New Year’s resolutions are a good beginning.
