Using social media to discuss a social media course
So I have a little blog of my own, called The Note on My Door, where I occasionally post professorly-type essays intended for students, faculty, and staff around UW-Madison to read. Last month, after your J 176 assignment where you had to find an article on the Internet that was not online, I was so intrigued by the responses that I posted a little note on the experience.
So far it's been viewed over 4,000 times.
Through comments and emails, this little post has led to contacts from educators and librarians from all over the world -- including a nice request from the folks at ProQuest to be able to adapt the assignment for their own education and training efforts.
What do you think about having your classroom experience showcased for the whole world? Is this something that would have been possible ten years ago? Five?
