After cancer treatment I couldn't talk for a full period, so no lectures. My wife, a mathematics educator, helped set up learning communities in my upper division math classes so that the students could work together. This led to some of my best teaching. I can talk now, but I'm still looking at how I can develop such communities in my classes.
