Teaching with blogs

October 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

In the winter semester of 2011, I taught the Science of Learning class again to the final year undergraduates in psychology here at Bangor. The class is about applying the principles of psychology to formal learning environments. I had decided to go out on a limb, and assess the entire module using blogs. The students were required to have a weekly blog entry, and make a certain number of comments, and I would mark them weekly. With 67 students, a bigger task than I had imagined (about 2.5. hours/week), but enjoyable nonetheless.

I made a presentation to our LEG (Learning Enhancement Group) in August about how wildly successful the class was, and have uploaded it here for your enjoyment (just over an hour).
