Oberlin Review: technology and textbooks

One of my students, Lucia, is also a writer for our campus newspaper. She asked if she could do a story on our class and I told her that I thought this was terrific (more than anything I was hoping I could get her to get the students to talk about what they liked and did not like, because as of this moment –two weeks into the semester– they had been pretty quiet and pretty compliant…and I was a bit concerned.)

Here is a link to Lucia’s article
Curiously (or was it fate?) another article in the same paper talked about textbooks as teaching materials too, but from a different vanatge point You can read that one here.

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
