... the feminist ethics course isn't going to work. It is being converted to a regular ethics course, same time, same location...
I'm not so sure I'm going to take these kinds of risks in the future. Last fall my honors ethics class didn't make enrollment, they opened it to late registration and the class was TERRIBLE.
The problem is that BNCC just doesn't have a handle on how to market these kinds of classes to their existing students. Every honors class I've taught I filled myself from students who had me in the previous semester...
The program under which I was going to teach the feminist ethics course seemed to have a good plan for filling the class -- except, it didn't. I only had three sections last spring -- and it seems that a total of 110 students just isn't a wide enough audience to fill a course of this sort... sigh.
What is tough is that there are pockets of real innovation at BNCC, the problem is that they don't seem to have any idea about how to communicate with students ---
In the end, this may end up to be easier for me. I can make the same syllabus for both of my ethics courses -- and I don't really have to push myself during a semester when I'm doing chemo--
but --- I really, really, really wanted that class to work.
