So, I’m on my first sabbatical. This is my 11th year teaching here (nine years on the tenure track), and I have been very lucky to have 1.5 semesters of maternity leave and a mid-probationary leave since starting the tenure track. The maternity leaves delayed my first post-tenure sabbatical by two years, which (a) seems right and (b) is part of why people who take parental leave are slower to progress through the academic pipeline, but it’s finally HERE! Since I won’t be in the classroom, I have a slightly different project for this blog:
Each week, I am going to read a published pedagogy article, briefly summarize, and then react to it. I’m hoping for two outcomes:
- Better ground myself in the literature so I can start publishing pedagogy articles that I’m proud of, and
- Create a list of ideas, techniques, and/or projects to try in future semesters.
I will still be blogging about other teaching matters, including any “clinician” visits I make to others’ pedagogy classes.
Do you have favorite journals or articles in the pedagogy field?
