Jesse Stommel Interviewed By The Chronicle of Higher Ed

Jesse Stommel, executive director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies, was recently interviewed for a story in The Chronicle of Higher Education called One Way to Show Students You Care — and Why You Might Want to Try It:

“When professors write course policies, they draw on past experiences with students, said Jesse Stommel, executive director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies at the University of Mary Washington. And not necessarily the positive ones. So the words they choose often sound defensive, and suggest that the professor has thought of every issue that might arise. The problem with that, Stommel said: ‘Even though I’ve been teaching for 18 years, I can’t possibly imagine what we’re going to do together this semester.’”
