Rob Wittig’s blog course this semester looks great! A lot of work for the teacher, I fear, but I think perhaps that’s just that the US system works differently. And that I’ve just been talking with the administration about our “resource analysis” of funds spent per student in our various classes. Teaching sure looks different from this side of the table…

Hm, how exactly shall I set up my web design and web aesthetics (hitherto taught as webdesign and critical analysis of new media by blogging) course next spring. It’s amazing; it’s only September, and I’m already late in planning next semester. They want us to have finalised schedules by October 12, so international students, who have to apply early, can see which classes won’t crash.
