Article Link: Priceless Gift Exchanges Between Faculty and Students. (M.E. Weimer)
Dr. Maryellen Weimer, author of the Teaching Professor Newsletter, posted the following article on Priceless Gift Exchanges Between Faculty and Students. In this article, she discusses the nature of the teacher-student relationship, particularly on how transformative some of these relationships can be. This is a nice time of year to think about what we potentially mean to our students and what they mean to us. She links another article, reprinted in Stanford’s Tomorrow’s Professor Blog entitled: When I Grow Up, I Want to Be Just Like My iPad. This is also well worth the 2 minutes it will take you to read.
