More "Stories from the Podium"

Introduced by Barbara M. Reul (Editor)

The first round of “Stories from the Poduim” – about how teaching has shaped us and continues to have an impact on who we are and what we do in the classroom at Luther College – appeared in the Winter 2016 issue of Impetus. A total of six individuals, including yours truly, rose to the occasion. If you haven’t read our contributions, I urge you to do so; you won’t regret it!

For this issue I wanted to widen the circle and approached six more people. They include an administrator and former dean, two faculty members, two long-time sessionals, and a former student.

Thank you for sharing “your” story with us, and making it highly personal. It’s a great reminder of how much we can learn from each other.
