TEACHING
I guess it is pretty cool and heartwarming at the same time, to receive a card such as this from a student two years after he had taken your module. (I hope it is not because I gave him the only A. :)) To the student whose name I have forgotten -- thank you!

I still have a lot to learn about teaching, among other things, from people around me, including my fellow colleagues (some of whom are my teachers), and even from my own students.

This article Best Teacher I Ever Had remains my favourite.

Tomorrow's ProfessorSM Listserv is a site where I obtain useful information on teaching and learning.
