Abstract

In the fall of 2013, at the age of 56 I successfully defended my dissertation and shortly thereafter accepted a job at a regional public university where I taught three new classes. My experiences teaching confirm that even at my age, change and movement to more effective classroom instruction are possible. I kept a teaching journal, and on reanalyzing it I found some “tricks” that helped me in this journey. I’d like to share them with other novice faculty.
