Let's blog!

This blog is the platform for us to exchange brilliant ideas in this seminar!

A few things to do here:

1. Respond to readings

Please post a short response to assigned readings (as early as possible but no later than 10 p.m. the day before class).

The purpose is to make sure you read the readings as well as to provoke analytical/critical/creative thinking on issues to be discussed in class.

You should first read through the assigned readings and then share your thoughts/questions/examples with us. If you have an online example, please include the link in your post.

Please label your posts using both "your screen name" (no need to use your real name, but be consistent throughout the semester) and the last name of the first author.

Feel free to comment on your classmates' posts.

Please write in short paragraphs so that it is easy to read online and in class.

2. If you come across any interesting/relevant news stories worthy of our attention, please post the link here. We expect everyone to share one story every other week (i.e., at least 7 stories per semester). Briefly explain why you think the story is important.

(If you have questions about the technical side of blogging, please let me know.)

Thank you and have a wonderful semester!
