A good week...

Some good news on the teaching front... The "engaged learning group" that two university colleagues and I proposed was selected as one of the four ELGs the university will roll out in fall 2007. The ELGs are cohort-style groups of up to 60 freshmen who will focus on a specific topic area for four one-hour seminars over the course of four semesters. We proposed an ELG on "Film & Global Culture" -- focusing on film as an art form and international business concern, influenced by and influencing cultures around the world.
