Teaching Carnival 4.11

[August's Teaching Carnival is from Sara Q. Thompson, the Director of Educational Technology at Briar Cliff University.  She blogs at Librarienne and can be reached at sara.q.thompson [at] gmail [dot] com or @librarienne on Twitter. ProfHacker has become the permanent home of the Teaching Carnival, so each month you can return for a snapshot of the most recent thoughts on teaching in college and university classrooms. You can find previous carnivals on Teaching Carnival’s home page. –@billiehara]

How about you? Do you have any last minute links you’d like to add to this month’s carnival? Did we miss your work? If we don’t know about you, we can’t link to you. So, let us know what you are up to in the classroom. You can easily have one of your blog posts about teaching in higher education included in an issue of the teaching carnival by doing any or all of the following:

  1. Email the next host directly with the address to the permalink of your blog post, and/or
  2. Tag your post in Delicious (or Diigo or other bookmarking service) with teaching-carnival.

Tonya Howe will compile teaching-related posts for Teaching Carnival 5.1. You can reach her via email ( or on Twitter (@howet).  Keep in mind, that if you don’t send us your posts, we might miss them. So send them on! Lastly, we are looking for more contributors for the Teaching Carnival, so if you have interest in compiling links for one month, please please contact Billie Hara for information.
