Teaching New Media

“The instructional methods that help students learn technology (‘Do X or else undesirable Y will result; don’t do A or else undesirable B will happen; you must do Z first and then C, or else you will have to start over again’) are so alien from the paradigms of humanities pedagogy (‘Everybody’s opinion matters; the instructor’s voice should not dominate the classroom; don’t damage anyone’s self-esteem’) that not only students but colleagues who might be observing your teaching may have a hard time adjusting to what you’re accomplishing.” Dennis G.
