Support the good work

There are pockets of exceptional teaching/learning work in my midst, and there are pockets of less impactful teaching and learning. Time is limited, and I want to devote my time to dynamic areas of teaching and learning, not areas of less depth and impact.

So as we think about the ways we spend our time, it's important that we think deeply about where we devote our precious time. Don't waste your time on efforts that are not rich, deep, truthful, informed, or supportive. Do devote your time to well-researched, worthy, student-centered learning/teaching activities--the kinds of activities that energize and engage students, teach well, and result in meaningful impact.
