- The return of teaching posts–and lively comment threads–suggests that classes have re-started: Nels’s “You Earned It!” (about grades), Ryan’s “When Perceptions Don’t Match Reality in the Classroom” (about “failed” classes), Billie’s “Disruptive Student Behavior (The Professor Edition),” and my “Textbook Costs and Classroom Ethos: A Practical Strategy.” Not restricted to teaching, Natalie’s “From the Archives” series produced 11 for ’11″ offered strategies for the new semester.
- Guest Konrad M. Lawson returned with a post about “Keeping Track of Archive Photos.”
- Brian recommended “Making Academic Social Networking Pay with Amazon Associates” (a particularly interesting comment thread, too). George offered observations on “How to Run a Group-Authored Blog.”
- Kathleen offered a rundown of the advantages offered by “Books in Browsers,” and Mark rounded up “Alternatives to Delicious”. Heather used the Verizon iPhone announcement to reflect on tech purchases in “I Purchased an Android Phone Just Before the iPhone Was Announced (And Why I Don’t Regret It).” Amy tried Using OtherInbox to Tame Your Email.”
- Erin reminded everyone to “Check-In on Your Insurance.”
- In the standing posts: George asked for advice about “Approaching Potential Collaborators” ; I wrapped things up with “Weekend Reading: The Midnight Hour Edition.”
Have a great week out there!
