Description: Blogs have begun to move beyond personal journaling to emerge as a possible form of academic publishing for faculty. Blogs also provide a new medium for student communication and connections. Blogs today provide a reflective medium for publication of teaching and research, and provide a point of connection for community building within one`s discipline or course. How does blogging fit in with other academic duties? How can blogs help scholarship and is it possible for blogs to harm scholarship? Should students blog as part of their learning journey, and can students effectively blog if faculty do not? This workshop will explore the use of blogs in both classroom and academic disciplines.
