Being A Scholarly Teacher in the 21st Century

Most of us in higher-education have a background that imparts a deep understanding of what "scholarship" means in our particular discipline. But as we venture into the classroom we are also asked to become experts in the social science of teaching itself. I hope to inspire you to be a scholarly teacher by discussing my thoughts on effective college teaching, the role of technology in the 21st-century classroom and what exactly it means to be a "scholarly teacher."
