Teaching and journalling

Bill Mathews made an interesting suggestion yesterday: encouraging students to keep a journal while taking a course. This, he said, would help in maintaining the links between prayer, contemplation and thinking.

Dick Liddy added that he makes his students do some free writing at the beginning of every class, much with the same results: getting in touch with oneself, self-appropriation.

Useful suggestions, to be added to Henrici's suggestion about keeping the minutes of seminar sessions.
