Geneviève Boulet co-edited CELT with me for a couple of years. She is an educational researcher in mathematics at Mt St Vincent University in Halifax. This is a TEDx talk she gave about the need to teach students how to see mathematics rather than simply memorize tables. I found it really interesting. It's about 16 minutes long.

Fellow oCUBEr Fiona Rawle has a great article in the May 2017 issue of the National Teaching and Learning Forum on the benefits of holding walking office hours. What a great idea! I hope to try it in the fall with my students.

This article is a good consideration of the culture of entitlement that pervades medical schools. However, the issue of entitlement is certainly prevalent elsewhere and is worth considering how our own teaching efforts impact students' sense of entitlement. Praise and nurturing our students is a good thing... in the correct context.
