Teaching On The Pulse

Welcome to the Wabash Center's blog series:
Teaching On The Pulse

About Lynne

Hello! As Director of the Wabash Center, I celebrate the opportunity to express myself through writing. I am a scholar who wants my work on pedagogy to be accessible to a wide gamut of readers and colleagues.  My blog column for the Wabash Center, entitled “Teaching on the Pulse,” is meant to engage colleagues in the craft of teaching and to assist during the challenging seasons of the teaching life. The stories I tell, the politics I engage, the poetic prose I offer, is meant to inspire, provide humor, and insight.  I hope you find, in my writing, a little bit of encouragement. I believe that, with intent and hard work, teaching can be improved. I hope my blog conversation assists you with improving your understanding and practice of teaching.

Before the quarantine caused seismic interruptions, a cloistered education was deemed by many as the better education. This longstanding approach to education meant that the student would sequester from the world, study undisturbed from the goings-on of the world, to then emerge and return to the world as a learned ...

Have you ever asked a question in class for which you did not know the answer; a question for which you did not have THE one answer in mind? Have you ever planned an assignment or designed a learning activity that was so freewheeling that you did not know what ...
