On March 14, 2017, the Georgia Tech teaching community gathered for Celebrating Teaching Day, a demonstration of the innovative pedagogies that feature in courses across Tech, put on by the Center for Teaching and Learning. The inventive work of Brittain Fellows was on prominent display during the day’s events via a series of posters (see above slideshow). Each poster highlighted a teaching strategy, assignment, or example of student work produced for a Brittain Fellow’s course, and each poster spoke to the unique approach to teaching WOVEN communication developed by individual Fellows. The posters are reproduced here so that you can be inspired by the exciting work undertaken by Brittain Fellows this academic year.
Christina M. Colvin specializes in twentieth- and twenty-first-century American literature, the environmental humanities, and animal studies. Her current book project, The Disorder of Species: Animal Encounter in Anthropocene Literature, examines how literary texts expand, challenge, and complement the abilities of the sciences to describe nonhuman animal complexity in the current and previous century. Her peer-reviewed work appears in the Journal of Modern Literature, Evental Aesthetics, the International Journal of Comparative Psychology (co-authored with Dr. Lori Marino), and the edited collection Mourning Animals: Rituals and Practices Surrounding Animal Death. Dr. Colvin has taught courses in American literature and culture, environmental literature, modern and contemporary poetry, and multimodal composition. She is currently a Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
