Engaging Students with UMW Blogs

Presenters: Stephen Gallik Jeffrey McClurken, Rosemary Jesionowski, Mara Scanlon, Stephen Gallik

UMW Blogs is an on-line publishing platform available to all members of the UMW community.  Through its versatility and ease of use, UMW Blogs provides faculty with a simple and effective way to get their students to critically explore ideas and examine course content in a wide variety of ways.  In this panel discussion, four faculty from varied academic departments will demonstrate their use of UMW Blogs to engage students in courses on women’s history, digital art, literature, and biology.  Panel members will discuss all issues related to implementing a UMW Blogs site in an undergraduate course.
