Something I thought about:
- How to structure a course around the idea of uncertainty and inquiry. In the past, the oral fluency course that I teach has focused on presentations and a rather straightforward transfer of information. This term I'd like to think about how to frame good questions and how to approach these problem spaces with nuance.
Something I did:
- Reframed my spring course, created the course Moodle, and updated all course documents.
- Tried to strengthen the through line of this dissertation chapter, which is currently extremely choppy and reads like three separate papers.
Something I read:
- I didn't have time to read much beyond my own diss work, and in the evenings I got caught up in the impeachment hearings. In his podcast, Preet Bharara interviewed Congressman Adam Schiff and Dan Goldman about the second trial before it began, and it was fascinating – I realized how little I knew about the differences between a criminal or civil case and impeachment and how that affects overall strategies. Good stuff.
