DeVry University, ENGL 135: Advanced Composition

I was asked, somewhat unexpectedly, to teach a section of ENGL 135: Advanced Composition during the July 2016 session at DeVry University. I have been asked, with less surprise, to teach it again in later sessions, such as the May 2017, the November 2017, and the March 2018. The section is a blended one, obliging ample online participation and a weekly four-hour on-site meeting. It represents an opportunity to reifne my teaching repertoire that is quite welcome, and the support structure already in place to facilitate teaching comes off as being quite helpful.

I plan to continue to make the usual course-blog updates throughout the term. And I have developed, if only provisionally, a new topic for consideration for the course project: curricular reform. I can hope it will yield better work than the standard topics have tended to prompt.
