ENG 1121 D397 Spring 2023

Reading, Questioning, Re-Telling -- on the path to Truth

The AI shows you what it is like to be in WEEK 16

Btw, although it includes no new work, per se, there is a WEEK 16 Folder for you. It also has the end-of-term schedule and final portfolio info.

I asked the AI to create an image of “happy college students completing their final portfolios in the style of Frederic Church with inspiring colors.”
Creepy, right?!

These are way better:

I asked the AI to create with this prompt: “”create an abstract yet naturalistic image of what it is like to complete college coursework in a hurry and include students in the foreground and an impressive and inspiring landscape with lots of interesting light” and these three images are the result.

the dark abstract forms of students are visible in the foreground of a swirling colorful dreamy landscape

No in-person class on May 15 and other important announcements

As we discussed last class, here are important dates and updates below:

May 12: I won’t be holding my usual Friday Office Hours. Apologies, but I will be out of town. See below.

May 15: There will be no in-person class. There will be Zoom Office Hours for drop in questions, meetings, et al. (Zoom links are posted at the end of this notice.) Office Hour is optional, and is not required. Your submitted Portfolio will count as your class attendance.

May 15 is also the last day to Submit Final Portfolios. Namely: Students who received an extension on their Final Portfolio can submit it to their Student Folders. 5PM is the deadline. I have the list of names.

May 17: Finals Week. We don’t have a final exam in this class, so this will simply be a “lab” day, where you can do any work you like during class time. Talk, etc.

May 22: Finals Week–Last Day Party. Bring snacks, music. We take photos, have awards. Details to be announced. Yaaaaaay!!
