Teaching Carnival Update

Teaching Carnival 3.3 is now available for your reading pleasure.  This issue was hosted by Alan Benson and includes a number of great reads about education.  In related news, I’ll be hosting Teaching Carnival 3.4 right here on March 23, so if you have links that you would like to nominate for inclusion, please send them my way via email (chutry[at]msn[dot]com) or by posting the links on Delicious using the teaching carnival tag (teaching-carnival) or just follow these instructions from the Teaching Carnival website.

For readers who are unfamiliar with the Teaching Carnival, it was established a few years ago as a way of collecting some of the more interesting discussions we have about teaching in a single location.  Much like the film blogathons, it has proven to be a great way of developing community around shared interests.

Teaching Carnivals have always done an outstanding job of culling posts on pedagogical issues from humanities scholars, and those of you who are attending the Conference on College Composition and Communication (aka 4Cs), feel free to pass along your pedagogy-related posts about the conference, but as a scholar of film and media studies and as someone who hangs out in the film blog community, I’d also enjoy receiving blog posts on film and media studies topics as well.  What are some of your teaching strategies in film courses? In TV studies courses?  What are some of the best practices for teaching media, old and new?  What can movies and TV shows tell us about education?  Does film or television serve a pedagogical purpose?  As usual, everyone is welcome to participate, so please do send along your links.
