Blogs go academic.
Students post short assignments–often a “reading response.”
- The site may be limited to students-only or Yale-only.
- So there can be a sense of intimacy and safety.
This has an advantage over one-to-one communication with the instructor.
- All students see all work.
- There’s more transparency.
- As one professor said to ITG recently: “They see what’s possible–and it makes them think more strategically.”
