Putting Educational Innovations into Practice.

Hi, Everyone:

 

Since we do have a few new people, please take the opportunity to introduce yourself and tell us something about YOU.  That way, we'll know more about each other on our future conference calls.

It was a pleasure meeting other members of the editorial board during our first conference call. I work in the English department at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. As writing programs coordinator, I focus on writing across the curriculum and in the disciplines. My Ph.D. is in rhetoric and composition, but I have a long and abiding interest in literary criticism and critical theory, both of which I teach on a fairly regular basis. I look forward to collaborating with all of you.
Dear Sir

We shall be vary glad to have u on discussions in lit theories. Introduce urself pleaz
Hello, Dr. Valliurrahaman; This discussion forum is for members of the MERLOT English Editorial Board only. Thank you.
Hi, everyone! I am Andrea Sanders, and I am a faculty member at Chattanooga State Community College where I have taught all of the 1000/2000 level English courses as well as a course we call "Humanities" - an overview of art, literature, music, theatre, philosophy, and history - very similar to the "World History" sequence but with a focus on the humanities. In addition, I am currently working under a dual services contract engaged in a 1/2 time position with the Tennessee Board of Regents as the coordinator of the ROCC (Regents Online Campus Collaborative) faculty mentoring program. The ROCC sponsors the RODP - Regents Online Degree Program - which is a state-wide collaborative enabling students to get degrees completely online through their neighboring state institution. I have developed for my home schools and the RODP the following online courses: ENGL 1010, ENGL 1020, ENGL 2110 (Am Lit I), ENGL 2120 (Am Lit II), HUM 1010, HUM 1020.

I look forward to working with all of you!

Best wishes,

Andrea
Hi, Andrea: It's good to have all this information about you. I'm so glad you are again on the Editorial Board. We should make great progress this year.
Hi, everyone! In spite of my embarrassing lateness, I enjoyed meeting all of you on Tuesday afternoon. I teach at Winston-Salem State University, one of the smaller constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina. Except for a brief graduate assistantship, this is the only place I've taught, and I've been here since the fall semester of 1969. (Please note that this was my first full-time job!) My primary field is American lit, and my main research interest is late 19th century American writers, but I teach a variety of courses, including first-year comp, sophomore literature, and a teacher-preparation course that is part grammar course and part intro to linguistics. The last of these is taught both online and face-to-face. I have agreed to take on the editor's task, but I'm going to need quite a lot of help, so I really appreciate the fact that all of you have agreed to serve!
Becky, thank you so much for stepping up to this most-important leadership role. I know that the rest of the Board will help you out.
