Making a Difference—A Celebration of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship

The book has been described in The Teaching Professor as “(…) a marvellous affirmation of how teaching inspires, enriches and satisfies both teachers and students. If you need a shot in your teaching arm, this book will supply it.”
(Maryellen Weimer).

A project of the Council of 3M National Teaching Fellows, the book contains short essays informed by the rich and varied experience of 3M National Teaching

Fellows, as well as moving, and sometimes humorous, testimonials written by former students (teachers are not identified).

The book has already been used at “Reflecting on our Teaching,” a retreat facilitated by Mark Weisberg and Jean Koh Peters. Student voices from the book have been presented as staged readings on many occasions since the June 2005 launch.

Silences in Teaching and Learning

The latest publication by the Council of 3M National Teaching Fellows explores many of the silences that inhabit teaching and learning—the deep silence shrouding what is not said, the stifling silence of those who do not have a say, those magical silences when the most meaningful learning can occur.

Silences in teaching and learning is a groundbreaking book that has stepped outside of traditional academic writing, research, expertise. The very nature of silence and its resistance to language; the fact that this is a nascent topic within the academy; the editorial request that the writers write in an unconventional form and style; this is a risk-taking book.
