Muddiest points or comments from CDI Day 2: June 2017

I think this is a great list, Cindy. Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of the saying: "The older I get, the better I was" We often forget the time, effort, and missteps that went in to our own learning (and I would argue that some of benefitted from now extinct bonuses such as smaller class sizes, fewer financial commitments, fewer distractions in and out of class). Once we know it, we tend to forget what it was like to not know.

It might also help to take stock of students' (pre-) existing understanding by asking them about a key concept/process/etc. Their early answers could serve as a diagnostic as to where they're at and what you need to teach. This could also inform HOW we teach it.
