Teaching the social value of philosophical inquiry with interactive digital essays

At University of Notre Dame, Philosophy professor Meghan Sullivan launched “interactive digital essays” for her students, instead of dense PDF texts.


Interactive digital essays are mobile-accessible web pages attached to the online syllabus, with supplemental materials and clarifications embedded in the prose. A material that her students prefer.



Reframing the study of intellectual history for present-day philosophical inquiry

Sullivan also revamped a general education Introduction to Philosophy lecture course, which used to be geared toward philosophy majors even though few students in the course planned to pursue philosophy afterward. Instead of covering the intellectual history of Europe in 14 weeks, Sullivan's course now explores the importance of leading an ethical life and the social value of philosophical inquiry.
