Teaching Excellence

There is no single formula for effective teaching; effective teaching is a dynamic interaction of techniques, strategies, feedback and environment. Innovative teachers embrace this dynamic interaction… monitoring, assessing, changing… continually reflecting on the impact of their instructional practices. Innovative teachers approach teaching as a scholarly process that demands diligent attention to outcomes and a willingness to incorporate novel instructional strategies.

Finding Appreciation

Steps to finding your own appreciation at work

Many people struggle with the boundaries of what can be shared about faith within the classroom. Others struggle with understanding how to implement faith in the classroom when they do come from that type of background. Instructors either never attempt to do this because they feel absolutely uncomfortable doing it or they do it as many times as they can because it is a part of their fiber. Where ever an instructor happens to fall into this scale, there is a great resource that can help you to understand what integrating faith into the classroom is all about. I am providing the resource here and I will be giving more tools from this site and others in the future in order to help instructors feel more comfortable implementing faith into the classrooms at the higher level of education.
