What’s a great way for teachers to get ready for the start of a new semester?

Attending a workshop, conference or training session that helps consider new teaching strategies, share research findings on teaching, and share strategies on curriculum development.

That’s just what I’m going to be doing the weekend before classes start at the University of Florida. I’ll be attending the mid-winter meeting of the AEJMC Scholastic Journalism Division, held at the Poynter Institute at St. Petersburg.

I’ll be participating on a panel discussing changes in media curriculum due to changes in the media industry, leading a session on apps with colleague Judy Robinson, and presenting a research paper with UF doc student Christine Eschenfelder.

I’ll be blogging from the workshop on http://thoughtsonteaching.wordpress.com
