I've been putting the finishing touches on the University of Illinois post doc application (in the mail yesterday) and putting a teaching section into my portfolio. I still have a little work to do and I'd appreciate your comments and beta testing.

http://www.mailartist.com/honoria/teaching

The central page of the teaching section contains general information for University courses, informal classes, and my teaching statement. 2 syllabi are linked from the first two courses, and linked from Artist Trading Card informal class is a class description from a proposal to teach Artist Trading Card making and exchanging. The teaching statement link is at the bottom.

i rather like your presentation of information, especially the course description and syllabi....very clear and concise

that's good to hear. It's easy to put too much or not enough information!

hey Honoria!

took a look at the teaching section and these were the points that occurred to me:

Since there are syllabi for the first two courses I wondered whether there are going to be syllabi for the others also?

Your teaching statement: I think the link to this should be at the top of the page rather than at the bottom.

Also... I like the typography, but knowing that you're an artist and teaching art, part of me expects more colour/graphics on the page. Have you thought about this or are you deliberately keeping it monochromatic and graphic-free to highlight academic seriousness?

The courses sound very interesting btw! I like the idea of a class all about shades of gray....

Thank you so much for your response! I did put the teaching statement at the top at first but I looked all wrong. I will add syllabi as I finish them. I am about 1/2 way through the painting syllabus and I can't wait to do the life drawing one because I love life drawing so much. I also think it looks too vanilla but I haven't figured out exactly what images work with the content. Any ideas? I'm sure a nake figure at the figure drawing link will be added.
