Michael G. Cholewinski
We live in a “media-rich environment” every day of our lives (words, images, sounds, technology). I’m fascinated by how that environment influences our feelings, thinking, and communication. I research and teach ways to understand this environment and communicate in it more effectively (writing, media, culture). For fun, I love Photography and Writing, and think that they are challenging, magical, and enjoyable ways to communicate! I think all learning should be like that: Challenging, Magical and Fun.

My Place in the World
Every student dreams about his/her future. And every student is different. What do I want to be and why? How do I become who I want to be? In this course, students use the latest research tools (our own minds, other peoples’ ideas, media) to explore these questions. The goal of the course is to discover and explain what is most essential to your own existence…in English writing and discussions. For you.
