In honor, here's our first post. As I said then, we're aiming here "to stimulate dialogue and disseminate ideas about the teaching of philosophy as an academic discipline." How are we doing?
And here are some of our most popular or noteworthy posts:
- Harry Brighouse, "Don't lecture me"
- Becko Copenhaver, "Learning from the right students"
- Adam Potthast, "Please God, no group work"
- Chris Panza, "Academically Adrift, part 4: A call to arms"
- David Hunter, "Modelling behavior: Teaching broadly and essay setting"
- Jason Nicholson, "Teaching pre-college philosophy"
- Jennifer Morton, "Higgins' The Good Life of Teaching: The self-abnegating teacher"
- Jim Spence, "Gamifying the classroom"
- John Alexander, "Business and ethics: A disconnect, part one"
- Karla Pierce, "I'm confused"
- Mike Austin, "Does philosophy provide any answers?"
- Nathan Nobis, "African-American philosophy"
- Vance Ricks, "The case(s) for optional attendance"
- Michael Cholbi, "Downhill grading"
Also, let me take this opportunity to ask readers:
- Are there other ISW posts that you've found particularly insightful or useful? Perhaps we could create a 'Greatest Hits' link in the right sidebar?
- What would you like to see more discussion of here at ISW? What teaching-related topics would you be most interested in hearing more about?
