My approach to teaching a traditional campus-based course can be described as an interactive, dynamic learning experience in which thinking and verbal communication skills are strengthened while learning to ask good questions, frame complex problems, and articulate various points of view of philosophical signficance and practical concern (including your own).
Instruction occurs only on campus but students taking Introduction to Philosophy or Ethics will complete weekly assignments on-line such as surveys and quizzes through Blackboard. Students log into Blackboard at least once a week but to stay on top of things you may need to log in more often than that. You will also log into Blackboard to access the full syllabus, the course schedule, most of the actual readings, as well as to read announcements, get study guides, listen to test-prep pod casts, check your grades, and send the instructor emails.
Logic students need to log into Blackboard once a week. You will use Blackboard to get a copy of the Course Schedule, study guides, problem-set submission expectations, check your grades, and send the instructor emails. This is the more "laid back" of my courses. While it can be challenging in terms of content, the rhythm of my logic section tends to be "mellow."
