Brendan Riley's Teaching
My courses focus on active, collaborative models of learning.
Assignments usually work to blur the line between analytic and
aesthetic work, encouraging students to adopt a "writerly" attitude
toward their work, to use Barthes' phrase.
I regularly teach several courses in the English department at Columbia College Chicago, including:
- Rhetoric of Digital Media (formerly Writing for New Media)
- Literary Genres: Detective Fiction
- Zombies in Popular Media
- Writing and Rhetoric 2
I have also regularly taught the following outside English:
- Game Culture
- First Year Seminar
