Categories: Midd Blogosphere

All 60 of our students here in France- in Paris, in Bordeaux, and in Poitiers- are safe and sound!

We have advised them to not leave their homes for the moment, to follow the security advisements given by the authorities, to stay informed, and to keep their telephones charged so that our team can contact them and continue to assure that they are safe.  We will continue to regularly communicate with them.

Teaching at Middlebury WordPress site

Teaching at Middlebury WordPress Site

The  Library and the Center for Teaching, Learning and Research have been working together to develop a site where Middlebury College faculty can share different teaching methods that are being used across campus. We will also use this site to collect, organize and share resources that can be used to achieve different learning goals. Examples of stories currently featured on the site include:

  • Ways that faculty are using different annotation methods to provide feedback and emphasize close readings of texts
  • Creating collaborative resources to highlight and contextualize course content and themes

We are pleased to share the start of the Teaching at Middlebury site and look forward to working with all of you  to develop and refine the work that has already been done. It is designed to be a dynamic source of new content, connections and opportunities, so we hope you will engage, return, and share your work as you begin or continue your journey as educators at Middlebury. Please visit the site at

We look forward to featuring your work soon!
