Resources for Teaching in Tumultuous Times
As teachers, we cannot control all aspects of the learning environment. Sometimes local, national, and international events send shock waves through our communities that most of us cannot ignore and that all of us--students, faculty, and staff--experience in different ways. Although we can never predict how to respond in such moments, here are a handful of resources that might help with framing conversations both in and outside of the classroom.
Please see this selected list of resources.
Sherrerd Center Resource Library
A bookcase of resources on teaching and learning and on succeeding as a professor resides in Seelye Hall B8. Faculty and staff members should feel free to browse on site and sign out books to read at greater leisure. If you have a suggestion for a book we do not have, please let Floyd Cheung know.
Here is a list of titles that we currently own.
Many of you have had mid-semester assessments conducted by a Jacobson Center specialist, but if you have not, or prefer to conduct one on your own, here are some other options available through the Sherrerd Center:
