We are Legends Everyday!

Faculty engage in meaningful work here at UMW! I am proud to share brief overviews of their pedagogical prowess that earned them a ‘Box of Awesome.’ What you will see are faculty pushing the boundaries of traditional learning opportunities by creating innovative approaches to engage students in meaningful learning opportunities.


“Work like a Captain, Play like a Pirate.”

“Collateral learning in the way of formation of enduring attitudes, of like and dislikes, may be and often is much more important than the spelling lesson or lesson in geography or history that is learned…the most important attitude that can be formed is that of desire to go on learning”  Dewey

“I jokingly call this convergence of games into reality the ‘Gamepocalypse:’ the moment when every moment of life is actually a game.”  Jesse Schell


“Individual creativity is almost always stimulated by the work, ideas and achievements of other people.”  Robinson

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don’t go back to sleep.”  Rumi
