Have you ever gotten bored with your teaching?
Have you ever gotten tired of your students always looking to you as the be-all-end-all when a question is posed?
Have you ever wished you could sustain conversations about course content after class has ended?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then introducing blogging into your course could be for you.
I have done all the hard work for you. I’ve identified places where your students might struggle, and I have tips for how to help them (or prevent it outright). I've thought through how to organize the assignment for you and your students. I will share with you the exact directions I give to my own students, and I will show you an easy management system you can use to keep track of it all.
Blogging can invigorate your course and inject class discussions with new life. It’s a great way to connect course content to students’ questions and concerns and help connect the content to their lives. And it’s really pretty easy to do!
