I don’t know how many faculty read the ProfHacker columns in the Chronicle of Higher Education*. Many of them offer useful suggestions for incorporating technology into the classroom or offer ideas on new course assignments and projects. In the latest installment*, several members of the ProfHacker team share what they are doing this semester with links to a number of their syllabi, blogs and assignments. It’s an interesting read; I certainly found it useful.
If you enjoyed this and would like to read more, I suggest that you subscribe to the “Wired Campus” newsletter from the Chronicle. This is one of eight or ten e-newsletters that focus on a particular issue in higher education, in this case, technology. The process of creating an account and choosing a newsletter takes all of 2-3 minutes, and then the information comes to you. In the midst of my busy day, week, semester, I sometimes appreciate the push of an article instead of finding and reading the Chronicle myself. When I’m on the go, it’s easy just to check my email and read one of the articles sent to me. The “Wired Campus” pulls together most of the leading headlines from the technology section of the Chronicle and offers additional features as well.
