Incorporating Blogs into the Syllabus: Making Their Space a Learning Space
Glass, Richard; Spiegelman, Marsha
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v36 n2 p145-155 2007-2008
The growth of online resources and the advances in Web 2.0 technology are changing the information landscape and impacting teaching and learning. While information literacy has been recognized as a critical component of undergraduate learning, little if any discipline-specific research is done in the lower division mathematics/computer science courses during the first two years of college. The authors of this article collaborated on an instruction project that used course blogs as a new methodology to enhance faculty-student interaction geared to the millennial student. The project, which integrated expository research in core and major mathematics/computer science courses with information literacy learning outcomes, extended the traditional classroom as well as the roles of the participants.
