As the years go on, I have noticed a steady decline in the ability of candidate students to conduct a successful interview. The ability to confidently sell yourself and provide a potential employer or professor a well-rounded view of your personality and professional qualities can really take you far in life. However, it seems this talent is an ...

I admit that every once in a while, I find myself dealing with a student that is struggling to learn the basic and essential principles of the material we are teaching while the rest of the class has moved on and ready for new material.

Last blog, we
talked about receiving criticism and offered a few practical suggestions on how
to take it. In this blog, I want to discuss how to give a negative feedback. In
your role as a supervisor or a teacher, it becomes your responsibility to be a

Students carry on vibrant conversations all day long, but once in the classroom, it becomes a challenge for them to talk or to express their feelings. It is ...

In our classrooms, we encourage critical thinking to facilitate integration of presented material and to aid in the acquisition of new material.
By learning how to think critically, students ...
Consider this: In 1929, U.S. health care costs were about $4 billion. By 2007, those costs were more than $2 trillion. Increased technologies, procedures, and specialized medicine led health care costs to skyrocket to the anticipated 20 percent of our GDP by 2015, compared to 5 percent earlier in the century. People pay to stay healthy. It's basic ...
With the new year in its infancy, it's time to think about what we do and how we do it. We have all worked for the supervisor content to sit in an office and watch everyone else work. I'm fortunate. I don't have one of those. My supervisor is out there on the floors with us, doing his share and sometimes more. We've also all worked with the ...
