A disempowering of my PointPoint presentations is empowering my students and making my History and Theory of Art unit more memorable (for them and me).
Five international academics helped teach a unit about literary movements of the 20th century this past semester thanks to an Avondale lecturer’s use of videoconferencing.
An anthology featuring student and professional work has been dedicated to the poet whose collaboration with an Avondale academic led to a national award for innovative teaching.
Endless sunburnt dunes pass by as a bus speeds through the outback. Cramp creeps up a crouched leg on a boat in the Mekong River. And children play saxophones slightly off tempo in a cringeworthy performance on a crowded train in Berlin.

An innovative class may not only increase the emotional intelligence and wellbeing of students at Avondale but also of those whom the students will teach.
