Episode Two: To Blog or Not to Blog?

The second Faculty Tech Studio is at 3pm Friday, September 8th in McMichael 115. There will be a reception following at the Holland House. (Directly across the street - could this BE any more convenient?!?) The recording portion tends to be 20-30 minutes, with a nice session afterwards at the Ho House for chat and discussion. This week's topic is blogging (w00t!), and our guests are:Ashley Holmes, Lecturer, EnglishPrudence Layne, Assistant Professor, EnglishWayne Conley, Multimedia Developer, IDDMany faculty members are using blogs in their teaching activities. There are two main ways that we have seen blogs being used in concert with other classroom technologies up until now:By faculty themselvesas a "faculty member home page"as a class home page, with comments to students, daily assignments, etcBy students, for regular in-class or out-of-class writing assignmentsOur questions this week focus on these and other uses of blogs for the college classroom. What about comments - when are they appropriate? Do students have concerns about their privacy? What sorts of writing work best with blogs? Is there a difference between high-stakes and low-stakes blogging assignments? What should a faculty member who is a veteran blogger know about the newest blogging tools? (And hey, should I be annoyed or thrilled about the new blogger beta?!?) On the flip side, what should a faculty member know if s/he is just getting started with blogging?Listen to the recording of this session, or subscribe to the podcast and be ultra-hip.
