Falling into fall…

It’s hard to believe that fall semester is here — especially when it was 85 degrees here in Georgia yesterday.  But the semester has already begun and at Georgia Tech we already have the first week of the semester under our belts.  I’m looking forward to this semester – here’s an update on what I’ll be doing :

  • I’m teaching an English 1102 course on “Literary London.”
  • I was accepted into the Class of 1969 Teaching Scholars program at Georgia Tech — a semester long seminar along with a $1000 grant to implement a project related to “student engagement” into my spring class.
  • I’m presenting at 3 conferences this coming year:  the Victorians Institute Dickens conference in October, NAVSA (North American Victorian Studies Association) conference in November and MLA in January (I’m presenting on digital pedagogy).
  • I’ve become the Chair of the Social Media Committee and  Editor-in-Chief of the Brittain Fellows blog “TECHStyle” at Georgia Tech.
It’s going to be a busy semester, but I’m really looking forward to it!
