Culture, globalization, mentoring, and lifelong learning: We talk this week with John Baldwin, a professor in the School of Communication and the 2016 Outstanding University Teaching Award winner for tenured faculty. Baldwin shares his insights on those topics and more, as he and Jim Gee explore the link between students’ self-identities and learning. They also discuss the importance of modeling positive behavior in your class—even when the discussion gets difficult.
