dc.description Includes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP3 file: "CFT Podcasting - Podcast Episodes - Episode 5 - James Lang on Teaching First-Year Students - In this episode, we feature an interview with James Lang, Associate Professor of English at Assumption College in Massachusetts. Dr. Lang is the author of Life on the Tenure Track: Lessons from the First Year, a memoir chronicling his first year as a faculty member, and On Course: A Week-by-Week Guide to Your First Semester of College Teaching. He also writes "On Course," a column on teaching that appears in the Chronicle of Higher Education. In the interview, Dr. Lang discusses the idea that undergraduate students can experience some kind of personal transformation during their first year of college. Is transformation a reasonable goal for first-year students? If not, what is a reasonable goal? What are some conditions that facilitate these types of goals? What are conditions that inhibit them?" Lang argues that self-awareness of core values is a more realistic goal. Classroom discussions rather than lectures promote self-examination. en
