Event Description
A course blog adds a project-based focal point for the academic work done in a course, allowing students and faculty to review, comment upon, and publish scholarly work. A well-designed site can encourage a sense of collaboration and community within a course. Blogs can incorporate multimedia, encouraging students to illustrate their writings with images, audio and video, and can give students unique opportunities to write for audiences beyond the class or even the University. McGraw Commons, a website-publishing platform based on Wordpress, is hosted by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and provides blogs for Princeton coursework. This session will provide an overview of the platform, examples of past course blogs, and ideas for using blogs effectively in course assignments.
