Podcast On Your Plan episode 12 with Dr. Bonner Slayton

IMG_20150630_093726134In this episode I learn from Dr. Bonner Slayton! He is excellent at breaking down classroom routines in a very methodical way in order to promote organization, self-reflection, and discipline in students which leads to increased learning. We also discuss teaching adults, our responsibilities as professionals, and balancing personal writing goals – which is especially helpful if you are pursuing a doctorate!
