Intentional Teaching

Intentional TeachingIntentional Teaching is the name of my newsletter and podcast. Both are aimed at college and university educators to help them develop foundational teaching skills and explore new ideas in teaching.

The name Intentional Teaching is a spin on my 2019 book, Intentional Tech: Principles to Guide the Use of Educational Technology in College Teaching. I’m using it to indicate that we should be intentional in how we teach, but also how we develop as teachers over time.

Note: If you are looking for Intentional Academia, the outstanding blog from Robert Talbert, this isn’t it. Go here instead.


The Intentional Teaching newsletter comes out most Thursdays, and most issues feature a short piece on college teaching as well as links to more things to read or experience around the web. To sample the newsletter, check out the first issue from October 2022 or this piece on structured reading groups, also from October 2022.
