@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable I don’t use blogs to teach (yet) but they have been very useful in building community and organizing adjuncts #AdjunctChat. 1/28/2014 16:11:25
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat I use Blogger cuz it’s easy & have 2 blogs. Teaching & a personal one. 1/28/2014 16:11:43
@Melissa_Venable Good ideas here! RT @Comprof1… Info changes quickly so I don’t use texts. I use combination blogs/journls #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:12:02
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable That’s how I use it for my students also. Like to have it public to force better quality. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:12:15

@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Nice! Can you tell us more about these blogs? Are you part of an adjunct group that communicates via blog? #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:13:20
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat I used a blog for virtual book club with 10th grd & had pre-service tchrs build their child lit text sets on individual blogs 1/28/2014 16:13:28

@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Welcome! Glad you are facilitating today’s #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:13:36

@JeffreyKeefer @cookingandcomp Always in interested in how people start teaching as an #adjunct. What is your story for getting into it?#AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:13:45
@SBowerMurphy @Melissa_Venable Like to follow the latest tech and news in online ed.  Would like to write blog with that focus.  Too broad? #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:13:52
@4KM @Comprof1 I also focus on journals and occasional blogs rather than texts. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:13:52

@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable Do you (all) blog in an open site or under the LMS? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:14:11
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable Like 2 find info in multiple languages (read french, Spanish, dutch, Portuguese. SOMETIMES German #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:14:15
@JeffreyKeefer Hmm, seems my Tweets came as a Twitter blanket. Perhaps to keep #AdjunctChat warm?!?! 1/28/2014 16:14:40
@4KM We have to have opt out clauses for public student blogging because of privacy legislation (+ Patriot Act etc.) #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:14:40
@cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer I just finished my master’s. Applied for several FT jobs, but only interviewed for 1 where I am now adjuncting #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:14:51
@fabianbanga Hi @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:14:54
@JeffreyKeefer No wonder nobody in #AdjunctChat  replied to me!! 1/28/2014 16:14:57
@Melissa_Venable @SBowerMurphy Sounds like a good place to start – and I bet you’ll find a more specific niche as you get going. #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:15:05
@Comprof1 @SBowerMurphy @Melissa_Venable NO. I actually write about comm, technology, higher ed, research, and cross-cultural matters. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:15:19
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Oh, & I facilitated a grad student writing group & posted all handouts, tips, & writing links on a blog 1/28/2014 16:15:30
@Melissa_Venable There you are! 😉 RT @JeffreyKeefer Hmm, seems my Tweets came as a Twitter blanket. Perhaps to keep #AdjunctChat warm?!?! 1/28/2014 16:15:33
@Comprof1 @SBowerMurphy @Melissa_Venable I have a following despite eclectic topics. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:15:54
@cookingandcomp @fabianbanga @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable I have used both. My last inst. used gmail, making blogger convenient. I also use WP #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:15:59
@4KM @Melissa_Venable Moved fm http://t.co/n0ZfEZVB7F to http://t.co/8w49SHumlf, which I like better unless pro helpers hide coding #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:16:13
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga @Comprof1 @cookingandcomp WordPress is my platform of choice.  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:16:31
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer Now you just need a twitter Teddy #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:17:02
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat / Don’t you find problems cause the audience? Blogs, SocMedia? Because most people are monolingual. 1/28/2014 16:17:06
@SBowerMurphy @Comprof1 Thanks!  I’ll check out your blog.  Sounds interesting! #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:17:09
@Comprof1 @4KM Yes, students can submit if they don’t want it public. But none do. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:17:17
@EdiblyOrganic RT @4KM: We have to have opt out clauses for public student blogging because of privacy legislation (+ Patriot Act etc.) #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:17:30
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga @cookingandcomp Why? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:18:00
@cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga @Comprof1 I keep my blog there. I’d like to convert it to a resource for #fyc but unsure how #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:18:04
@fabianbanga @cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable #AdjunctChat / me too, WP for public blogs, Moodle for the class. 1/28/2014 16:18:06
@Melissa_Venable Anyone? RT @fabianbanga Don’t you find problems cause the audience? Blogs, SocMedia? Because most people are monolingual. #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:18:19
@4KM Does anyone else deal with privacy policies or legislation for students blogging for assignment purposes? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:18:21
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable Yes. Sometimes I find great resource but know I can’t use it for class reading. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:19:05
@Melissa_Venable We’re moving into Q2) What pre/cautions should adjunct academic bloggers be aware of? #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:19:09
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Can’t you have your students access it and read it as an assigned reading? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:20:17
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat /  my problem is with the audience; exclusion / have 4 groups. Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese 1/28/2014 16:20:57
@cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable I worry about divulging info. I want to share course triumphs but I worry about protections. So I say nothing. #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:21:03
@Comprof1 @4KM I can’t require my students to use public forum, but I can ask them to use it. I have in syllabus opt out. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:21:20
@4KM @Comprof1 Some use “anonymous” blogging approach as another workaround.  Of course offline misses potential interaction #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:22:02
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable 1 thing I’ve seen happening in k-12 is teachers getting in trouble for complaining about students. I never do. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:22:31
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga good idea! Also trying to find best resources to provide/use. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:22:44
@JeffreyKeefer I seem to be getting Twitter api issues. Perhaps I am destined to not speak much about #AdjunctChat blogging today? 1/28/2014 16:22:50
@4KM A2 Our culture fragments lives. There are risks to being a whole person #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:23:05
@fabianbanga @4KM #adjunctchat // yes, all the time, this is why blogs from my classes are under the LMS (closed) 1/28/2014 16:23:08
@rjhogue @4KM My class spent a week talking about digital identity and privacy. This weeks issue seems to be sharing pictures on blogs. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:23:15
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable Wonder if wouldn’t be better to have different blog for each language then cross reference. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:23:17
@Melissa_Venable #AdjunctChat – I’m getting Twitter API messages, too. 😦 I can “hear” you but not sure you can hear me as well. 1/28/2014 16:23:46
@4KM @fabianbanga Say more about exclusion? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:23:56
@Melissa_Venable #AdjunctChat – I’m getting Twitter API messages, too. 😦 I can “hear” you but not sure you can hear me as well. 1/28/2014 16:24:07
@Comprof1 @4KM Honestly, I have yet to have any student opt out. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:24:08
@JeffreyKeefer I use self-hosted WordPress for my blogging though do not use it right now much with my students; I do use it for academic work #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:24:26
@fabianbanga @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat // yes, it is not legal to open the class here; many problems, like of privacy. 1/28/2014 16:24:37
@rjhogue I have some students who have “private” websites, which they invite me in #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:24:42
@cookingandcomp #adjunctchat I hope that last tweet didn’t come through a billion times! 🙂 1/28/2014 16:24:44
@4KM @rjhogue Image and identity: a meaty issue for sure #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:24:48
@fabianbanga @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat // you have to create a parallel class open, not directly connected with the original class. 1/28/2014 16:25:19
@Melissa_Venable cookingandcomp I’m having similar fear! It’s all or nothing with Twitter it seems.  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:25:25
@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable Adjuncts always need to be aware of the cost of exposure or retaliation when critical of #highered #AdjunctChat. 1/28/2014 16:25:46
@fabianbanga @4KM #adjunctchat //  it is about the nature of the comunication / si hablo en espanhol y tu no, quedas afuera. 1/28/2014 16:26:12
@fabianbanga @4KM #adjunctchat / the same for any language you use. 1/28/2014 16:26:32
@4KM @Comprof1 I haven’t either, but have been out of online teaching for a while #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:27:01
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat As a classroom teacher, was concerned @ identifying students, same in higher ed. I share general student comments, not specific 1/28/2014 16:27:06
@cookingandcomp @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable yes. And my experiences with the irb have made me hyper aware #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:27:09
@rjhogue @4km I had to make the blog/website assignment very flexible. I’m happy that most people are using public blogs/websites #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:27:12
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat /  I do 1/28/2014 16:27:16

@Melissa_Venable rjhogue Is this identity piece what you mean by “flexible” with assignment? Or is there more? #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:28:37
@rjhogue @4KM meaty issues, but allows my students to choose the option that is best for them given their specific circumstances. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:29:13
@rjhogue @Melissa_Venable my students needed to demonstrate creation of a website or blog, but the content isn’t important  #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:30:12
@Comprof1 @rjhogue @4KM Same here.  As I said, most don’t opt out. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:30:29

@4KM @fabianbanga Did something like that once; most of experience on another platform but theoretically “optional” #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:30:51
@Melissa_Venable rjhogue Got it. That makes sense. I have a similar project in a course related to instructional design.  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:30:53
@rjhogue @Melissa_Venable they were also required to journal, either in a public blog or using Blackboard Learn …  #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:30:55
@JeffreyKeefer @cookingandcomp That has been the story of my day! #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:31:03
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable But IRB is different than teaching/privacy laws. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:31:24
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Ahh, they don’t like #adjuncts?!?! #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:31:47
@fabianbanga @rjhogue  extremely slow here / nothing is coming under #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:32:25
@rjhogue @Comprof1  @4KM the module on digital identity helps some students choose to create a professional identity  #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:32:36
@Melissa_Venable JeffreyKeefer Or maybe it’s the blogging?!  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:32:36
@Comprof1 Does anyone use a blog as assigned reading? e.g. I use academic research blogs as required reading. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:33:24

@Comprof1 @rjhogue Do you have any push back from admin or students that not “academic” enough? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:37:12
@Comprof1 Other advantage to using blog for adjunct is access anywhere. But how/where do you grade? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:38:15

@rjhogue @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 my course is about getting outside your comfort zone and trying things, so I’m not marking quality  #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:43:22
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable I end up doing it through email to ensure confidentiality. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:43:44

@JeffreyKeefer I have had trouble using blogs and such with students, as it sometimes seems like “forced” work rather than a natural support #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:44:53
@Melissa_Venable @rjhogue @Comprof1 Couldn’t agree with you more! Especially when operating outside the comfort zone. #nogrades #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:44:57
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Text set was already required in the syllabus, just used tech to present it. Allowed for multimedia connections 1/28/2014 16:45:30
@cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 #adjunctchat everything I do that benefits students seems like #extrawork. But if it helps, worth it. 1/28/2014 16:45:41
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I would have them do the writing privately (problem I had was trouble w/eyes due to online reading #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:45:58
@rjhogue @JeffreyKeefer ah but for some, they get that ah-ha moment, when they see the value in the forced activity – makes it worth it #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:46:02

@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Twitter wasn’t as well embraced.  Was an extra & stdt posted minimally. Need to re-think how I introduce it. 1/28/2014 16:46:40
@rjhogue Ya, I’m not sure about integrating twitter – other than perhaps demonstrating the power of a chat #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:47:18
@Melissa_Venable LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer have had similar experiences/resistance to Twitter as an assignment. Try to identify specific tasks. #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:47:47
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer twitter never works for my classes, facebook > yes! #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:48:06
@Comprof1 @rjhogue @JeffreyKeefer And sometimes won’t do forced work unless graded. I grade on process rather than result outside comfort #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:48:08
@4KM @Melissa_Venable Have graded learning journals, but in a learning outcome framework @RRU #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:48:11
@LitProfSuz @rjhogue #adjunctchat I began a conversation with them @ creating an online professional identity.  This was a new idea for them. 1/28/2014 16:48:49
@rjhogue @Comprof1  @JeffreyKeefer ya, I’m grading mostly on their reflections – did they reach and did they learn #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:48:56
@4KM @Melissa_Venable Sorry – twitter trouble.  Will try to describe remote platform/community shaping assignments in next tweet #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:49:01
@rjhogue @LitProfSuz I had them Google themselves and Google Me (Rebecca J. Hogue) … it brought some interesting insights to them #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:49:44
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Blogging had least resistance. In fact many students preferred. But can use for job search. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:49:52
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I had a mini mooc in 2012 (open class) 2k folowers and participantes. the hastah #mooc38 = zero, non #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:50:09
@Melissa_Venable @4KM Thanks, Alice! No worries. Twitter is really struggling today.  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:50:13
@4KM After traditional 2 wks, grad students went into international online wkshop. They were to design & complete 2 assignments #adjunctchat 1/2 1/28/2014 16:50:16

@4KM 1 assignment more theoretical, 1 practical. Option: collaborate w ppl in the workshop. Told me assignments & learning outcomes #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:51:23
@Comprof1 @rjhogue @LitProfSuz I did same for identity. Esp diff between common names & uncommon names. Had them do parents/grandparents #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:51:29
@holly_fraser #AdjunctChat @JeffreyKeefer A course I teach was originally framed w/blogs; I give opt for other platforms, but must have a clear objective! 1/28/2014 16:52:00

@Melissa_Venable @KavuBob Thanks for sharing that study, John. I think I’ve seen it as a Sloan-C “Effective Practice.” Good stuff.  #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 16:52:59

@KavuBob @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat it also allowed the blogs to be anonymous – only the prof had to know address 1/28/2014 16:54:14
@cookingandcomp #adjunctchat when using tech, how transparent are we about what we hope students learn? Can sharing our goals be too directive? 1/28/2014 16:54:41
@rjhogue @4KM @Comprof1  @LitProfSuz if you don’t take control of your online identity, first impression will be created by someone else #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:55:10

@fabianbanga Thinking about the origin of blogs (late 90s) but we used to have html base “blogs” before. The edu approach was different #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:57:10

@cookingandcomp @rjhogue @Comprof1 @4KM @LitProfSuz This sounds like a really fascinating activity/assignment. I must remember this for #fyc #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:58:08
@4KM I love work w learning outcomes because you provide ditches in roads but no recipe book #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:58:13
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga Blogs are vital (long history) in communication (came out of journalism). So my students find it useful. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:58:52

@JeffreyKeefer This is a fascinating #AdjunctChat! Look forward to catching up with the stream when more steady access @Melissa_Venable 1/28/2014 16:59:14
@cookingandcomp @4KM I have trouble conveying to students that examples are not “models.” I try, but this is a strategy I need to work on! #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 16:59:57

@SBowerMurphy Writing a course soon.  Haven’t tried a BB blog assignment yet, but sounds interesting.  Might try it as a non-graded activity #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 17:00:29
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Maybe we sound better fragmented when you can fill in blanks? #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 17:00:36
@Comprof1 Got to go now. Thank you @Melissa_Venable Great #adjunctchat today. 1/28/2014 17:01:13
@4KM @cookingandcomp Human brain seems to convert examples to models very naturally. Probably comes from when we were a prey species #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 17:01:41
@Melissa_Venable This has been so helpful! Thanks to all for sharing great insights and questions. And having patience with the stream. 🙂 #AdjunctChat 1/28/2014 17:01:46
@DrHepner I am building my fall criminal justice courses to all include blogs.    #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 17:01:48

@DrHepner I almost want to use Twitter for my face-to-face courses to keep the conversation going.  I could really use it after today. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 17:03:39
@4KM @Melissa_Venable Thank YOU.  Hope everyone is energized and extra-productive/creative now. #adjunctchat 1/28/2014 17:03:43
