So, I’ve been working on getting my emerging syllabus up onto Studyplace, which I’ve chosen as the wiki tool for our course. It’s a project started by a prof in my department, with a goal of being an "educational commons" that facilitates inquiry around the question "what educates?" (No small task, eh?) They also provide a space for courses to have a home, and I thought that it would be appropriate for a class on social and communicative aspects of ICTs to be housed in such a framework.
Anyway, the course is one that’s been on the books for a few years now at TC – I took it during my first semester, almost 5 years ago (memories…) – and is usually taught by my advisor. I’ve kept his assignments and course goals, but have also had quite a bit of flexibility. So, I added a semester-long blogging assignment, made an underlying research strand more explicit, and chose the course topics and readings. I’m happy for feedback, but be nice! This is my first go around. 🙂
