We certainly hope you found something useful from the fifteen or so offerings this time around, such as:
- Guest author Amy Earhart’s post on Using NINES Collex in the Classroom.
- Speaking of classrooms, Nels provided great tips for Leading Effective Classroom Discussions on Controversial Issues, as did Amy for Modeling Civility and Use of Evidence in the Classroom. I took up less personal matters when I wrote about Using Creative Commons Licensed Material in Your Classroom.
- For the writers in the audience, Billie offered another installment in the Writer’s Boot Camp series; this week was the Inspiration Edition.
- From the department of planning ahead, Erin wrote about Effective Summer Planning, while Heather offered A Few Strategies for Eating Well at Conferences.
- Speaking of eating, for lunch this week we had (Leftover) Tetrazzini-Style Fettuccine. Lunch was followed by the usual Open Thread Wednesday.
- In technology, George talked about Using GoogleDocs Forms to Manage Your Contacts, then followed that up a few days later with How to Hack Your Inbox. Natalie provided instructions for How to Back Up Your Cloud, and Ryan asked How Do You Organize and Annotate PDFs? As for that question, the 40 or so comments by ProfHacker readers and contributors are going into a follow-up post that Ryan will write in a few weeks.
- Jason wrote the most widely-read post of the week, his Top 5 Lessons From the 2009-10 Academic Year. Many of you shared your own lessons in the comments, which is what we’re looking for here at ProfHacker. Jason also gave us the Weekend Reading: Classes’ End Edition.
Oh, and since some of us have never been mistaken for modest, here’s a little (much appreciated) positive press:
Have a great week!Return to Top
