Howard Hewitt – One of the goals we have had since starting up Wabash blogs is to use them on immersion learning trips. Toby Herzog’s "English 497: Seminar in English Literatures: Place, Space, and Community in the Novels of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy" is a great example. If you haven’t taken a look at it, published on the faculty/staff and current students page – click here.
The students took lots of photos and blogged each day on their visit to England over the Thanksgiving holiday. Jenna Rogers provided some technical assistance but the guys did a really great job talking about their incredible journey.
This is a great example of what we hope to do with immersion learning in the spring. It creates a real-time documentation of the experience, a journal for future classes, and a piece future students and alumni can read to learn more about immersion learning.
We will also be adding a blog from Wabash swim coach Peter Cesares this week. Look for Peter’s "Lanelines" on the sports and swim pages later this week.
