Joseph R. Accinno Teaching Award Recipient 2002-03

Dr. Joseph CammaranoDr. Joseph Cammarano

Political Science

“I see teaching as a vocation, one that forces me to renounce the use of podiums and lectures, two things that create literal and symbolic barriers between learners and learned. It leads me to present myself as a fallible human, in the hope that this will demystify my role as professor. It leads me to use different books and different learning strategies each time I teach a course. It leads me to remind my students that I am no smarter than they are, just older, more experienced, and more widely read.”
