Blogging for Teaching and Learning
April 12, 2007 - Jude Higdon & Chad Topaz
Blogging and other social software technologies can be leveraged to enhance learning outcomes. In this talk, we discuss the learning science underlying the thoughtful use of blogs as instructional tools. We also present case studies of how blogs were integrated into courses in mathematics, writing, and political science, and into graduate-level research portfolios.
