Mentors & Peers

Mentors & Peers

As I seek to continue to grow and develop as an instructor I recognize the value of learning from other teachers.

David Way is one teaching expert that I have had the opportunity to interact with and learn from. He was my instructor for the course “The Practice of Teaching in Higher Education”.  This course encouraged me to critically reflect on teaching and who I was as an educator, and greatly helped me develop my professional teaching identity. He also observed and provided feedback for a workshop I taught on dealing with difficult classroom situations for the Center for Teaching Excellence in the Fall of 2015.

As a fellow with Cornell’s Center for Teaching Excellence one of the most valuable experiences has been the opportunity to interact with other graduate students who are also passionate about teaching. I have learned so much from hearing about their experiences and listening to their points of view.
