This semester, my first as a doctoral student, should be fairly manageable. Yes, there will be plenty of reading and papers/assignments, but I think it will be a good transition back into school.
My reading this semester will likely be, comparatively speaking, a bit easier than future classes.
I am taking Teaching in Christian Higher Education and Hebrew Exegesis, in which we’ll be working through various psalms and the book of Ruth.
My readings will come primarily from:
- What the Best College Teachers Do by Ken Bain
- Creating Significant Learning Experiences: An Integrated Approach to Designing College Courses by L. Dee Fink
- Renewing Minds: Serving Church and Society Through Christian Higher Education by David Dockery
- Old Testament Textual Criticism: A Practical Introduction by Ellis Brotzman
Again, none of the reading is dense, so it shouldn’t be too laborious, but I feel it will be stimulating nonetheless.
