Thoughtful Teaching- Uncovering your Identity as an Educator

Jill Marie McSweeney, IDPhD Student
Graduate Teaching Associate
Centre for Learning and Teaching

At the end of class you shut down your computer, collect assignments, and head back to your office to work on the lecture for the next class. This routine can become automated and absent of purpose and enthusiasm, and can leave your teaching deflated. But what would happen if you took time after class to think about what happened and how your students reacted? A thoughtful teacher uses personal reflection to understand their role in the classroom and their connection with students to enhance and grow in their teaching. This discussion will focus on the use of reflection and self-assessment as an educator to understand your purpose and goals in the classroom.
