What Do Previous Archive Scholars Have to Say?

  • I got to think about my teaching and how to improve it, but even more important, this was a forum to act on those thoughts.
  • The collections I created were very helpful to my students in learning difficult concepts. One of my fellow scholars was very helpful to me in my professional development.
  • I used most of the resources I found and put in collections this semester in my classes. They helped my students to better understand difficult concepts.
