    WooHoo, I'll be teaching!

    I just found out that I'll be teaching a course in the undergraduate department at the same time I'm working on my MLA. Not simply a t/a helping out with a class, or leading a lab, but actually teaching a course on my own. Granted, it will be one of 4 sections, and I'll be able to lean on the senior faculty for class material, projects, and whatnot, but I'll be the one responsible for delivering the lectures, working with the students, grading, etc.

    It's LAND 3030 Environmental Planning - It's a design studion course, the 1st semester of 2nd year for the BLA students. From what I understand, it's large-scale McHargian analysis at the beginning of the semester, to site design toward the end.

    As teaching is the whole reason I'm going back for my MLA (I have a BLA + 10 years experience & a license), I'm excited that I'll be getting this exposure right off the bat.

    So, any advice?

    Dunno. Perhaps paper to explain the concept, but I don't see much beyond that.

    Very nice job on getting the teaching gig.... Maybe they'll make you an adjunct faculty member sometime.....that would be cool....
