The University of Iowa’s Writers’ Workshop says that “Writing cannot be taught” but that “writers can be encouraged.” Whether or not literary creativity can be taught, certain skills can certainly be enhanced. Students can acquire insight into what constitute effective or realistic description, style, narrative, characterization, or use of language. They can also learn about voice, diction, plotting, setting, and figures of speech as well as how to craft dialogue that gives clues to a character’s personality, social position, values, and character.

International Higher Education: Forces Working Against a Global-Local English Department

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:09pm
Panel for 2018 MLA convention
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The intersection of globalization and American style higher education is perhaps most keenly expressed in the necessity of the English language as a connecting force. However, as the lingua franca of many ‘global’ or ‘international’ liberal arts programs, it is more than just a medium of instruction. English operates as the defacto language of globalized higher education, with the assumption that it can be dehistoricized and value-free. Yet faculty teaching in international contexts know that English medium education biases many higher education practices, including text selection, the subordination of other languages, and often an associated second class treatment of non-Western cultures.

Blended learning in higher education: research findings

Higher education innovators and institutional leaders have many expectations about blended learning. To get the most out of face-to-face and virtual learning environments, these must provide learners with flexible learning environments that overcome situational barriers for learning. Additionally, they must be pedagogically rich learning settings where different learning styles can be supported. Blended learning allows for the combination of a variety of offline learning ecologies (in classrooms, at work, at home, in the field) with a wealth of online resources.
