I hope to use this blog to support my teaching and research interests. I’ve got interested in the possible uses of blogging for academics as part of my Learning Technologies Course which I’m undertaking for a Diploma in Academic Practice with NUIG’s own CELT (Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching).
Hopefully, it will provide an accessible way to communicate with students, other academics and even members of the general public who are interested.
Much of the content is quite ‘academic’ although I do throw in a mix of my own opinion as well. Please note that comments are moderated by me and I reserve the right to edit or these delete these as I see fit.
As I write this (Jan 4th), the NUIG Blackboard system is down and has been so for an extended period over Christmas 2010/11, so perhaps I will have to make much greater use of it than I imagined!
