During Cengage Learning’s 2014 TeamUP National Student Success Conference, held June 12-13 in Chicago, we asked instructors to share their answer to the question: What’s your passion? They described a number of things—from their goals as teachers (and learners), to the activities that refresh and inspire them, to the people who mean the most to them. Below, we’ve shared their responses; see how many of them resonate with you!
