Comment on Blogging: What’s in it for PhD students? by Tracy Sorensen http://www.bloggingbeyondtheclassroom.org/?p=421#comment-11010 Sun, 19 Apr 2015 01:26:26 +0000 http://www.bloggingbeyondtheclassroom.org/?p=421#comment-11010 Thanks for this! I’ve been wondering whether to blog, what to blog, how much to blog as I begin my PhD. I’ve been blogging for a few years now and have a little band of followers. Now that I’ve started my PhD I’d like to thread this experience through my posts, but I also don’t want to alienate my existing readership by suddenly becoming an “intellectual wanker”. Your thoughts are helping me to gather mine.

It sounds like your current model could be adapted quite easily to incorporate blogging. We’ll be sharing experiences of blogging within Moodle in near future.

When we mark coursework we tend to highlight a few issues for improvement. I try to work with students to make their blog as good as possible before publishing (perhaps I shouldn’t). That’s what takes up much of time. I’ll be talking through these issues re marking & editing in future posts.

Getting students to identify what makes a blog interesting, informative and attractive by reading good ones (like your own) is great starting point for ‘how to write a blog’! And, as with all mediums, there’s more than one way to blog well!

Glad to hear you are finding the site useful.

Comment on Getting Started: Tips for Starting Student Blogging by Joanne Bailey http://www.bloggingbeyondtheclassroom.org/?p=104#comment-4 Fri, 27 Jun 2014 09:05:20 +0000 http://www.bloggingbeyondtheclassroom.org/?p=104#comment-4 This is very helpful advice. Students on my third-year module produce a seminar portfolio of four short essays of 1000 words on specific topics. I am wondering about reshaping this into four blog posts per student – perhaps using our virtual learning environment – Moodle – as the blog platform. Then, perhaps, selecting a range for publication on a public blog.

The portfolio marking is already massively time-consuming, so I hope that blogging wouldn’t add too much – but I suppose setting out ‘how to write for a blog’ must be tricky.

Anyway, I’m so glad of the advice you are publishing here.

Thanks for getting the comments and conversation rolling!

Great to know about Kingston University’s capstone project. Let me know if there is anyone I can contact about it. If you would like to write a post about teaching social media to the MA students in public history, let me know. Whenever suits you!

So this initiative is very welcome indeed and I look forward to following the discussions.
