An Academic Librarian's experiences and notes

Publishing with Blogs @ Baruch

with one comment

Baruch has embraced blogs as an educational tool with students. So this panel featured Baruch faculty and students that have used blogging as a way to talk about what they do. These are notes that I took, with some links to the blogs that I saw that I thought was useful. Many of the blogs shown were actually only in house use, meaning that it is not public, so it it only course specific.

Wide range of publishing on this platform as case study

Google analytics is free

Micro mongraphs… Thru small repetitive tasks.. Are students allowed to do historian type work to learn.

Blog focused on. Written by students at Baruch

Value added to get readers to come back.

Deliver information

Creating engagement (contests)

Blog focused on. Originally a print magazine, that transition into a digital one.

Be ahead of technology in a user friendly way

Interactive mapping.

Can allow for more pre class work. (Inform students, of what is the agenda beforehand)

Can have a public and working blog.
Librarians at Baruch Reference has a blog. 10 years old

Reference question posts.. Allow students to help themselves…

Keep it open… So that way students can learn.

Alternative way for students to participate.

Make blogging part of the grade if blogging is used as a method in class.

Remedial assistant.

(Way to speak out against wasteful time vs. productive time.)

Online participate.. 80/20% rule.

Real time and not just a prescribe time…flexibility.
