While this material is discipline-specific, even esoteric, I believe that its crossover nature, and aspects that lend themselves to general discussion of pedagogy, would appeal to a broad sector of academic readers. I hope to offer most of my ideas during this summer of 2012, in order to have the major course design done before classes start at the end of August. You are invited to follow along and contribute your own thoughts. Identification will be required. I will monitor posts and delete those that are incoherent, offensive, or otherwise counter-productive.
Here follow some of the facets that I hope to address, in concert with contributors:
- The subject matter
- Pedagogical goals, general and specific
- Assignments that work
- Teaching methods
