I have taught seven courses at the University of Washington. This page links you to the most recently posted syllabi for those courses.
Scholarship and Public Life
This graduate seminar was originally co-designed and taught with Patricia Moy in 2003. Also taught by Gerry Philipsen in 2005 and in 2007-2008 by David Domke. For six years, ending in 2009, this was a required seminar for all graduate students in our department. Click here for more information on the principle of public scholarship.
I taught this as a graduate and then as an undergraduate course to introduce students to the work of the Cultural Cognition Project and explore with them the means of potentially bridging this particular cultural divide. The syllabi for both courses are available at the Project website.
Many students in my Political Deliberation course have made contributions to the participedia.net website, which archives projects in public engagement.
