How to have a successful TEACHA

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This is our 9th TEACHAPALOOZA and we have learned a few things about how to get the most out of our days together.
As you consider which Deep Dives you want to attend, I urge you to go to the sessions that you do NOT know the most about. TEACHA should challenge you and expand your interests.

Make connections. This is a relaxed atmosphere where you can make lifelong friendships. The academic world is quite connected and our participants have a long record of helping each other.

We try to make everything "open source." We urge you to share what you know, what you teach and how you teach it. We are here to help each other. This is not a competition.
