"Creativity and Human-centered Teaching
is the Wave of the Future:
An Interview with Christine Henseler"
Christine teaches classes in Spanish on contemporary Spanish language, literature, culture and digital media. In English, she teaches courses on sustainability and social change, Generation X, media culture and literacy, remix culture, the Arts & Humanities and the Liberal Arts. She has team-taught with faculty from across the college, in particular with colleagues from the Computer Science Department on topics pertaining to new media, social networking and video games. She has also developed several multidisciplinary courses taught by faculty across campus, including the Humanities Super Seminar and "Entrepreneurship and Digital Media," a course generously supported by Michael Rapaport, Union alum of '59. Prof. Henseler is fluent in Spanish, German and English.
