Reflections from the Classroom

Reflections from the Classroom

 

Reflections from the Classroom is an annual collection of essays on teaching written by notable instructors at KU. Each year, the collection covers a particular topic, such as “Course Redesign” or “Engaged and Active Learning.” First published by CTE in 1999, this publication is designed to speak to instructors across the university.
