"For the discussion boards, I assign a reading allowing us to explore a particular subject—sometimes a controversial one—in greater depth. Everyone participates in the discussions on-line, and I love the opportunity to hear the diverse opinions of the class.” Kerry Dean Carso Chair & Associate Professor of Art History.
