Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

Thanks to Magna Publications, I get to play Santa Clauss early! They have recently decided to drop the price on subscriptions to their monthly newsletter, The Teaching Professor, by over 60%! (Must be the season.)  That I can afford!

All of the members of our community now have access to current and archived issues of The Teaching Professor, one of the premier newsletters in the field. You'll find instructions for subscribing to and accessing newsletters here. Among the many interesting articles available in the current issue, including several on enhancing critical thinking, you might want to check out

Writing Better Teaching Philosophy Statements

Even with the reduced rate I hope you'll help to make sure that we get our money's worth-subscribe today!
