Author and educator, Parker Palmer states, Community, or connectedness, is the principle behind good teaching, but different teachers with different gifts create community in surprisingly diverse ways, using widely divergent methods. Building on Palmers assertion, and reflecting on and rekindling our own passion to teach has compelled a group of us at Augsburg, led by Dave Conrad, to create and offer interactive opportunities for faculty to gather, reflect on our teaching values and purpose, and to share our discoveries, challenges, and successes in our quest to do what we love to do most teach.
