Using Blogging for Higher Order Learning in Large Cohort University Teaching: A Case Study
Farmer, Brett; Yue, Audrey; Brooks, Claire
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v24 n2 p123-136 2008
The small but developing literature on weblogging underscores its potential as an effective learning resource for use in higher education. This paper contributes to these discussions through an initial case study of the authors' experience with the on going development of an educational blogging resource for use in a large cohort, undergraduate liberal arts subject. Detailing the theoretical aims, design, implementation and incipient evaluation of the project, the paper supports the argument for the educational use and value of blogging but also highlights potential limitations and problem areas. (Contains 2 figures.)
