The UnEssay: A Discussion on Creative Assignments

Hi all,

I was invited onto a teaching-focused podcast by Mike Overholt, the Instructional Technologist for the School of Languages, Culture, and World Affairs (LCWA) here at the College of Charleston. I talk about an assignment I use called the UnEssay, in which students are encouraged to respond creatively to a prompt and a text or artefact that we’ve looked at in class. Thanks to Shari Rabin and Matthew Cressler for putting me onto it!

Here’s the podcast. Here’s the link to see a sample of the students’ projects.
