gzombie's teaching carnival #1
GZombie started a Teaching Carnival
and last week published the first entry
in the carnival. I wanted to give a little shout out because not only is the content really, really good (hooray, academic bloggers!) but the presentation of the carnival post itself was well done. Good job, GZombie!
In other blogging news, Dr. Free-Ride is posting again at Adventures in Ethics and Science
, thus narrowly avoiding a confrontation with me; I planned to pop by her office and refuse to leave until she posted something new. I would like her to talk about her online Philosophy of Science course sometime, because it was one of the best courses I've ever had at any school. The content was great, the structure of the class and the assignments used were really relevant, and I thought her participation in the discussion portion of the course was important with regards to tone, information provided, and how the discussion was carried on. Then again, I might have just been in a really good class and all subsequent ones sucked for her, I don't know. I hope that Dr. Free-Ride is thought of highly by her department and the administration at large, because I think she's a gem of a teacher in a school that has a lot of...how shall I put this....coal? Yeah. We'll go with coal.
