Primary Instructor:

What’s exigent about a course description for a course that, quite frankly, you’re required to take? You can’t even use this course description to choose between sections, as our English 124 and 125 students do. And how do we make the course kairotic as well as exigent for all of us, when some of us are teaching 124, some are teaching 125, some are teaching discussion sections, and some are teaching 695? We’re going to take a particularly rhetorical approach to this course, triangulating our professional and pedagogical selves, our students, and the content of our teaching, as we consider what’s at stake in this moment at this place.

We’ll also figure out ways to have our time together bridge goals for a pedagogy course such as 695 and also goals for a teaching circle such as 993. We’ll engage pedagogy as a community, talking about the stuff you’d expect – assignments, classroom dynamics, active learning, lesson planning, electronic communication, course design, student and teacher demographics, campus resources, office hours, technology in the classroom, time management, grading, professional development, and more – rhetorically. And we’ll do it with exponentially more exigence than that which exists in this particular course description. It’ll usually be fun and inspiring, always creative, and every so often absolutely magical. I look forward to engaging with you in September.
