Workshop on Blogging

"Teaching with Blogs and blogging while teaching: Using Blogs for Teaching and Research"
Talk/Workshop by Sara Puotinen, GWSS Department
Rachel Raimist Feminist Media Center, Ford 468
Monday, Feb 22, 3:30-5:00

Have you ever wanted to use blogs but felt overwhelmed by learning new technologies and techniques? Have you tried using blogs in your classes but found that the students didn't really engage with the blog or each other? Are you looking for new strategies for implementing feminist pedagogy?

These are just some of the questions that I will be addressing in my talk/workshop on blogs. In addition to discussing why blogs are valuable for both teaching and research, I will provide some strategies for using blogs in the classroom and offer a brief, hands-on tutorial on some blog basics. So, whether you are already using blogs in your classes or you aren't even sure what a blog is, this workshop is for you!
