I love teaching. It forces me to reach deep down inside me, even when I'm feeling crappy, and unleash the creativity, compassion, enthusiasm and humour that I feel are important qualities to bring to the classroom.

I get my inspiration and ideas from a number of sources. I collect (and read) books and articles on teaching, higher education, the information environment itself, and becoming a better teacher. On my bookshelves you'll find all of the titles from Library Instruction Publications, as well as:

I've also gained many insights and creative solutions from attending conferences and workshops on teaching, from hearing others talk about teaching and, most importantly, from conversations with other teachers about teaching and learning.
