I would like to offer to tutor a History Course at the University. The subject matter will be that of the history of Glasgow City. Glasgow has a very interesting (and sometimes dark) history that would make for a very interesting course.
I wish to use this thread to measure the level of interest before requesting the course to be approved. I have included the syllabus below.
Due to the fact that this will be non-credit course, I have kept it short and sweet (6 weeks) with only 2 homework assignments.
The History of Glasgow City
Week 1 - Beginnings: Early times to 1560
Week 2 - The Rising Burgh: 1560 to 1770s (Homework Assignment - Glasgow's Tobacco Lords)
Week 3 - Industrial Revolution: 1770s to 1830s
Week 4 - Second City of The Empire: 1830s to 1914 (Homework Assignment - Glasgow Heraldy)
Week 5 - No Mean City: 1914 to 1950s
Week 6 - Modern Times: 1950s to The Present Day (Final Exam Distributed)

I'm so happy that you have interest in teaching. The subject is indeed interesting. I have no doubt that you will intrigue students.
However, I would like to know more. What readings will you require? What will students do on days that there is no homework? Will you require participation? And please give more information about the proposed homework assignments. Will they be papers?
Please don't take my questions as a discouragement, but rather only as a guidance. I want to make sure that every course offered by the university has a fair amount of academic rigor. I appreciate your answers. You can respond in this thread. Or if you prefer, reply in a personal message, and the polished proposed course would be included at a later time.

I do indeed have an in depth plan for the course. I was not going to bother you with it until I knew that people would be interested in the course though. My plan does indeed cover all of your questions.
The plan has been made out in a text file on my comp so its easier to email it to you. If anyone else would lke to see this please let me know.

Do you need a proposed starting date also? I ask because although I have a good idea of the subject matter for the course, I do require to find some time to write the lectures and course materials. At the moment, I am slightly behind on some of the tasks I have set myself for the Ministry of Culture. Based on this, I imagine the course to be fully ready in about 4 weeks.
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Seriously, win or lose - and I'm not confident of the vote in Florencia at least - the process has mapped out how provincial mergers (a much talked-about-but-nothing-done subject) can proceed in future.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: If the MM and VD legislatures agree on a constitution for a united province, I would support the enabling legislation in the Ziu.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Provincial referendums to ratify (like for FL/FV) are not strictly legally/Organically necessary but I think we've set a good democratic precedent for them.

Eðo Grischun: There wasn't enough support for a merger of MM-VD last time the topic came up. I don't think anything has changed. Notably, it wasn't just Tories standing against the idea at the time as V was dead-set against it.

Eðo Grischun: Maybe those discussion will restart now that Epic is back around.
Sept 20, 2019 8:38:04 GMT -6
Eðo Grischun: Miestra: Yes, the precedent has been set and I agree that is a big positive. I still don't like that the Ziu needs an enabling Act though. Gives me similar feelings to when Scotland needs England's permission to hold referendums.
Sept 20, 2019 8:41:06 GMT -6
Eðo Grischun: I do recognise the difference. Talossan provinces aren't States, countries or nations in their own right. So, it makes sense for the Ziu to control their actions. However, it still stings to think that two provinces could...
Sept 20, 2019 8:42:20 GMT -6
Eðo Grischun: vote affirmative to merge with overwhelming majorities, yet the Ziu could still say no. They probably wouldn't, but the ability exists.
Sept 20, 2019 8:43:08 GMT -6
Eðo Grischun: Anyway. Whatever the result of the current referendum, I think we should all celebrate the democratic exercise that has taken place. The ability to speak our minds on self determination without violent means is worth applauding.

Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: Etho, not sure I will seriously go back into politics; meseems that Talossa is missing professional culturicians, and I am looking forward to working in that direction. Speaking of which: A CROATIAN REFERENCE GRAMMAR IN TALOSSAN IS IN THE MAKINGS...

Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: ...and everyone can help shape it, if they were so inclined! Also, lots of poems forthcoming!

Marcel Eðo Pairescu Tafial: Mas Epic, éu fost zirar, éu praiçeit contra l‘útzil dals müdadas [¿trad’éu?]

Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: ¡Bah, cräpuçă, non tradas niþil! Säip qe las müdadăs non sînt trei utzís. Força eu ocså lor removarhéu, salva per quaisevol mocts; pronums, e.s.p.
