    • Courses you are teaching

    • What excites you about teaching?

  • What brought you to this table?

  • What would you most like to find out about your students, about how they work or learn or respond, about what they hope for or worry about?

  • What kinds of information have you already gathered about your studentsââ¬â¢ learning, either formally through structured research or informally through surveys or conversations?

  • What sorts of learning challenges or learning opportunities do your students face that you think could also show up in other courses theyââ¬â¢re taking, in or beyond your program/department?

  • What sorts of teaching challenges or projects would you like to work on most in the upcoming months?
