“Impacts and Implications”
Many of us joined the teaching profession because we want to make an impact and help students develop as learners, thinkers, and contributing members of society. Communication is the tool we use to make this impact. However, we can never be sure of the implications. Are we communicating effectively? What do our students learn from our classes? How do they learn? How can we teach students to be effective communicators and make their own impact in their fields and communities?
