Grandpa’s Blog Bags Are Packed

with one comment

I’m looking forward to our Tuesday afternoon session at ELI. My colleagues Jim Groom and Cole Camplese have a carefully crafted plan for what we hope to be a very open discussion about the use of blogware or blog-like activities in higher education.

Three Guys Planning a Session

We will not mention the names of a few Canadians who left us short presenter-ed. Nope. We understand.

Our intention is to bring a few things from three very different experiences, and from three guys, who along with all having beards, also have been on the blog scene for a while. We are not here to talk about the virtues of blogging or not, nor to argue over platforms, but to look at the potential values of using said systems for much more than just posting personal updates.

So of course, it was appropriate that we set up our “presentation” or at least our media and resources, in a hosted blog environment. And apparently Cole was successful in squatting on a nice domain name 😉

Please use the comments here to fire back at us, whether you are in our session or not.
