Learning within a teacher community

American Mathematical Society – On Teaching and Learning Mathematics blog

Do you remember that feeling when you first walk into a class outside your comfort zone? Do you remember that exact moment when you feel your muscles tense and you wonder whether you’re going to be lost from day one, or whether you’ll hang in there through the first few weeks? I have to admit, I often had that feeling in math class, but recently I had the opportunity to meet with a Mathematics faculty member who reminded me of those teachers who are able and determined to see all students succeed regardless of their comfort-level with the content.

Professor Priscilla Bremser was kind enough to take some time during j-term to meet with me to discuss the ways in which she has transformed her math classes over several years teaching at Middlebury. In this article Professor Bremser outlines her inspiration, thought process and methods for making several changes in her classes, as well as her reflection on student responses and connection to the larger mathematics teaching community in Vermont and beyond. Priscilla’s teaching story is one of connection between educators as well as a deep attention to her students’ instructional needs.

Staff Council would like to thank everyone who donated to our March food drive. It was a great success!

Food Drive  343 pounds was donated to the local food shelves!

Also, many thanks to those who volunteered to set out collection boxes, calculate donated pounds of food, and deliver them to the food shelves on behalf of the Middlebury Staff. Great things happen when Middlebury Staff comes together.

Dear Faculty and Staff-

International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students (FIS) Host program.

Even if you are an experienced host, we encourage you to join us as your stories and insights are vital to new FIS friends who are trying to decide if they would be a good fit for the program.

Envisioning Middlebury: Talk by Gardner Campbell on Friday

Gardner Campbell

We are pleased to announce the second in our series of speakers for Envisioning Middlebury, our yearlong conversation.

Dr. Gardner Campbell serves as associate professor of English and special assistant to the provost at Virginia Commonwealth University. In his talk, he will discuss how the paradigm of “romantic computing—the experience of wonders [and] uncanny encounters” through technology—can help us fulfill our highest educational ideals.

Dr. Campbell will speak at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey on Friday, May 6, at 12:15 p.m., PDT, in the 499 Van Buren videoconferencing room. Vermont participants are encouraged to attend and participate in the videoconference in Davis Library 105 at 3:15 p.m., EDT.  Opportunity for discussion immediately following.

Envisioning Middlebury is a community conversation to engage individuals across the Middlebury community. These discussions will form the foundation for Middlebury’s strategic planning process. Please join us by attending the talk and engaging in our community conversation.

Sincerely,

Susan Baldridge
