Matthew E. Morain. "Authorship and Editing 2.0: Challenging students to reclaim the "we" in Wikipedia"
Nice review of the debate around wiki-pedia. References Alan Liu's "Developing a Wikipedia Research Policy" as one of the key articles. Matt handed out his assignment "A Better Wikipedia" with great instructions--hope he posts this someday. He also notes that Wikipedia maintains a good school-use page, and provides suggestions.
Barb Blakely, "New TAs and Multimodal Pedagogy."
Barb talks about the WOVE curriculum, Wenger's "inventive participation" rather than dutiful participation--good distinction. Emphasizes "learning to be" a WoVE instructor, rather than training to be a TA. Students designing units a successful assignment within TA class. Workshops were not especially successful--surprising!? Community of practice most useful.
Sybil Priebe, "It's Just My Blog. And a Reflection Tool. And an Imaginary Colleague. And . . ."
Using the Pecha Kucha method, SP presented images, blog excerpts, scholarship in just over 7 minutes. Yoga reflective music. Will she post it to YouTube? Add her own audio for that. A call to blog.
Casualene Meyer, "Ethos, Pathos, Logos and Logistics: Blogs in an Online General Education Literature Class."
Great line: "Rubrics do not create relationships." Commenting on student blogs = creating relationships, filling out the rubric does not.
