    the most part still is, nascent within the humanities. As computers increasingly become an irreplaceable part of daily life in modern culture, however, more and more instructors attempt to carry out the task of incorporating technology into the pedagogical techniques of their disciplines. Over the past four months I’ve had the invaluable opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at one particular attempt to integrate computers and writing instruction. In Dr. Will Hochman’s English 101-43 (SP 2003)

    Composition, as well as other academics, have discouraged the use of plagiarism detection services. We recommend that before using this service, faculty members consider several important issues raised by the use of Turnitin. Turnitin Discourages Good Pedagogical Practices Concerning Writing Because Turnitin compares student writing against a database of articles, previously submitted student writing, and web pages, it’s most easily used as a plagiarism detection service. Such use emphasizes the policing

    which answer you come up with, the person next to you might come up with a totally opposite answer. This explains why we ask this question in the first place. No one answer is exactly right. There are advantages and disadvantages to two different pedagogical means of which I will discuss: (1) The idea that teachers force issues on students and (2) The idea that teachers sit back and let the students be free to say what they feel. Many teachers start a new class off with set rules. The teacher is

    culturology of education (Krylova 1994, 1995, 1996), a new trend in theories of education that is being constructed upon the established turf of philosophy of education. The culturology of education includes inquiry concerning both cultural values and pedagogical methodologies. It attempts to explain the whole complex of cultural, sociocultural, and multicultural problems in education with reference to principles drawn from both educational theory, and cultural anthropology and philosophy. I argue that the

    instructors—indeed, many successful authors—cannot afford the luxury of Ford’s ultra-Ludditism, many of us may identify with his disdain for the technology’s mounting intrusions into our lives. If instructors of creative writing have been slow to embrace the pedagogical role of computers, their reluctance conforms to a long-standing trend among teachers in the humanities. The tendency to resist the introduction of computers in the classroom, however, grows out of an antiquated conception of the relationship between

    Aristotle's Reform of Paideia ABSTRACT: Ancient Greek education featured the pedagogical exercise of dialectic, in which a student defended a thesis against rigorous questioning by an instructor. Aristophanes’ Clouds, as well as Plato and Aristotle, criticize the practice for promoting intellectual skepticism, moral cynicism, and an eristic spirit - the desire to win in argument rather than seek the truth. I suggest Aristotle’s logic is meant to reform the practice of dialectic. In the first part

Cultural Studies gives us the methods for analyzing the media.  It gives us the pedagogical tools necessary to critically interpret the media.  It enables us to read cultural text ³against the grain² by deconstructing it.  In other words, it allows us to decode the encoded messages.  An example of an encoded message could be the ubiquitous

    students have grown up in a world dominated by technology. For them, multimedia forms are a central part of everyday life. This means that schools can no longer afford to ignore the impact that technology has on its students. We must adjust our pedagogical approach in order to address the role of technology and multimedia in modern education. One important adjustment that needs to be made involves recognition of the fact that learning can and does occur outside of school boundaries. Students can

High school teachers often rely on a highly structured environment for fear that any attempt at providing students with pedagogical freedom will result in classroom chaos or anarchy. I ague that it is necessary for teachers to break from this structural binary of discipline. When they engage in radical pedagogies they create spaces for dialogic learning and the possibility for

    with you, were you insured? And of course, a professor who has taught the course before advised me that I shouldn’t prepare lectures, but rather just “tell stories.” So I spend a lot of my time in this class telling stories, (which satisfies my pedagogical fears over not knowing enough about method to cover 20 hours of course-time – having had a significant part of my own training in the “go out and do it” approach), but also imploring these anthropologists-in-training to think about what information
