The joys of teaching

With the exception of the final exam, my teaching duties are done for the term. Sweet. Of course, I'm still working on the syllabi for the two courses I teach in January: Introduction to Sociology of Science and Technology and Advanced Studies in Urban Cultures. They're coming along nicely, but need to be finalised by next Wednesday and the readings sent to the printer.

I find the fourth-year urban cultures course much easier to plan. Despite the fact that the class draws a multi-disciplinary bunch, I can count on certain interests, knowledge and skills. Second-year intro classes are tough. The readings can't require a lot of background knowledge and, in this case, the subject matter is often quite challenging.

The only thing I know for sure is that I love what I teach - it never ceases to amaze and delight me. And students, in turn, teach me all sorts of weird and wonderful things.
