Great Works of Literature

“This assignment asks students to add a tale to The Thousand and One Nights on the course blog. Through an act of creative imitation that exploits the Nights’ additive structure, students participate in the text’s history of multi-author composition. They also prepare for a face-to-face discussion analyzing its intricate narrative form, and the relation of form to content.”
—Prof. Laura Kolb

Survey of Art History

“As the semester progressed I learned to trust their contributions to their own learning. It was a real challenge to let go of my control of the learning. But once I did, I saw a vast improvement in student retention of the material. The student-led learning that was a necessary component of the hybrid subsequently became an integral part of all of my courses in the following semesters.”
—Prof. Karen Shelby
