You've probably heard that students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. Hold that thought.


(0:42) Reminder: episodes released about twice a month during the summer.


(1:01) Students often want a copy of our slide presentation before class, so that they can take notes by simply annotating our slides. Is that a good idea?


(7:11) The easiest way to listen to (and follow) this podcast (TAPP Radio) is with the feature-rich TAPP APP


(8:58) Is it okay to sleep in on weekends to "catch up" with sleep lost during the week? Some new evidence from a large study.


(11:20) Why Kevin is committing to take specific steps to show his students that he really cares about them. And how he is committing to care, no matter what.
