Welcome To LS 8100 Summer 2006
Welcome to the summer MLS Introduction to Interdisciplinary Study class.
You will find blogging to be a useful way to think 'aloud' about the materials in the class as well as a way to see, inspire, and be inspired by the work of others.
Within the first week or so, we will have everyone's blog address listed here and it will be an easy short-cut to reading the other class blogs. Please feel free to experiment with the various features of the blog software. If you run into problems, use the help link on the UThink main page, ask others in the class, or me. We are all learning about blogging together so don't feel shy about asking questions.
You will also find entries here on writing and research. I will post articles, examples, and helpful hints here on a regular basis. Sometimes you will ask a question in class or via e-mail and I'll post a response here--that way everyone can take advantage of your curiosity.
Ultimately, this class is a community of thinkers and community for inquiry. Your participation, via your blog, your comments on other blogs, and in class is not only welcome but essential.
So, welcome and welcome again!!
