Cathy Davidson wrote a new post, Why Blog Posts and Responses Are ESSENTIAL (not accidental) in Active Learning, on the site Black Listed: African American Writers and the Cold War Politics of Integration, Surveillance, Censorship, and Publication 1 year, 3 months ago
WHY BLOG? If there is no learning theory and research supporting blogging than it can become as meaningless as any other classroom exercise for the sake of an exercise.
In this case, we have thought through t […]
Thank you for this contextualization of the blogging process. I have found that by reading the blog posts, I am more deliberately interacting with the material and with the perspectives of the other students in the class. I do not always agree with what other students have posted, and it helps me understand other perspectives that are not only my own and/or the professor’s. I also think, when writing a blog post, it helps us as students to clarify our thoughts about the reading and to ensure that we are understanding and analyzing the material.
With that in mind, why do you think that there has been a limited degree of interactions with the blog posts among some students? I can’t help but notice many of the posts do not have comments from the 12+ students in our course.
As an instructor myself, it is common for students not to do their assignments and/or to hand in late work and I always struggle with how to motivate students to do the work and to rise to their potential, without being the kind of hierarchal teacher that makes unreasonable demands of students in the classroom.
I’m delighted to announce that the Futures Initiative will welcome three new fellows for the 2018-2019 academic year:
Gustavo (Gus) Jiménez, Communications Director
