One of the most exciting new developments in education today is the growth of blogging as a pedagogical and research tool. Student and instructor blogs provide an online forum for the articulation and exchange of ideas and information, and enable new hybrid ways of teaching. Research blogging has helped generate new and larger audiences for scholarly work, and opened novel avenues for collaborative and interdisciplinary work.

This session will address both the theory and practice of blogging for teaching and research. The first hour will be devoted to discussions of how to best design and employ student and research blogs, while the second will walk participants through the creation and optimization of their own free WordPress blog for teaching or research.Open to all faculty and graduate students.
