Real Life Stories
Published May 8, 2018
In the winter 2017 semester, I did some research on Inclusive Pedagogy and came across Learner-Centered Teaching, a book by Terry Doyle and Todd Zakrajsek that had me rethink the way I considered my role as a teacher. The book spoke so much to me that I very soon longed to experiment with its theories in the classroom. I literally turned my course upside down halfway through the semester in Long Fiction for Business, a program-specific core English course in the Business program at St. Lawrence. I moved on from a traditional lecture-based approach to a complete blog development project. I did not realize how much of a career-changing experience it would become.
