Teaching and Learning – with Blackboard & Map
With Blackboard & Map is a new dimension of the International Center for Security & Leadership site that Dr. Tom Drohan and I hope will grow into a meaningful conversation about the teaching and learning of strategic studies and global security. A sort of sounding board where we can share thoughts about the academic address of strategy, security, and leadership – the curriculum, pedagogy, content, experiences, opportunities, challenges, and resources that teachers and students encounter as they work together through a program of study at any level. It is my hope that this blog will remain conversational in tone and spirit, providing a virtual “coffee shop” where professors, lecturers, and students of all levels and experiences can discuss mutual interests across the broad arena of our field.
Additionally, I hope to begin incorporating student perspectives in this part of the site, perhaps to include short essays written by students on a variety of relevant subjects, offering them an audience with whom they can share thoughts on a broad canvas of topics and events. Suggestions, contributions and comments for this blog area are welcome, and may be sent to me directly: Ron Machoian.
