Between semesters, on Thursday, January 9, 2014, Washington University faculty and staff from across disciplines will gather on the Danforth Campus to share insights on teaching and learning at the biennial i teach symposium co-sponsored by The Teaching Center, WU Libraries, and Arts & Sciences.
Held every other year in January, the all-day event features interactive presentations by WUSTL instructors, as well as plenty of time for informal discussions among colleagues. Along with a plenary address titled "Fostering a 'Growth Mindset' on Teaching," the program will include 16 sessions on metacognition, active learning, mobile devices, digital projects, self-questioning, visualization, and more.
Created by Lynn M. Kutch (Kutztown University of Pennsylvania), the German Graphic Novelis a blog which describes and provides teaching ideas for all kinds of German graphic novels, from biographical to historical to crime and literary adaptations. It also includes a list of other pedagogical resources.
In addition to borrowing books from other MOBIUS libraries, WU students, faculty, and staff can request DVDs and CDs as well as other AV materials from participating institutions for a 10-day loan period. As part of the agreement, WU will also be loaning some of our AV materials to other. You request AV materials the same way you do books.
The local borrowing period for our AV materials has also increased to 14 days. So you can check out DVDs owned by the Libraries for two weeks!

"This volume of original essays celebrates Barbara Becker-Cantarino, whose prolific publications on German literary culture from 1600 to the twentieth century are major milestones in the field of German cultural studies. The range of topics in the collection reflects the breadth of Becker-Cantarino's scholarship. Examining literature from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, the contributors explore the intersections of gender, race, and genre, history and gender, and gender and violence. They provide fresh readings of the works of known and lesser-known writers, including Cyriacus Spangenberg, Maria Anna Sagers Luise Gottsched, Heinrich von Kleist, Frank Wedekind, Christa Wolf, Helga Schütz, Terézia Mora, and Martina Hefter. Their discussions explore the possibilities and limitations of theoretical discourses on travel literature, deconstruction, and gender and suggest new avenues of investigation."--Provided by publisher.
