For example (and yes, this is about me!):
Hi everyone! My name is Dev Bose, and I am your instructor for ENG 102, sections 010, 015, and N75. I just finished my PhD. in Rhetorics, Communication and Information Design at Clemson University last semester. I chose this area of study because I love to write and teach, and am continuing to do research in teaching composition. My favorite book at the moment is The Marriage Code by Jeffrey Eugenides because it talks about how love and romance evolve for people with bipolar disorder. My favorite film is Lost Highway because it is a detective story told in a very unique way–with cameras and Marilyn Manson! Speaking about technology, this semester I hope to learn how technology, media, and the Internet shape how we interpret classic literature.
