Dr. Alan C. Dickson (Chidsey)

What do you enjoy most about your interactions with students?

“I’d be lying if I said I don’t enjoy it when they laugh at my jokes. So, I like the performative aspects of teaching but obviously that’s not the point. I really appreciate when students overcome their reluctance to speak in class or come see me in office hours and share their ideas or the struggles they’re having with the material. Their courage then makes it possible for me to step up my game and better fashion my pedagogical approaches to the people in the room.”
