Teaching Carnival 4.11

Here at ProfHacker, we devote about one-third of our posts (and our time) to teaching-related issues and activities.  Our posts have covered, among other things, pedagogy, students, colleagues, tips, tricks, books, and lectures. We understand the importance of teaching in higher education. Nevertheless, we are not the only ones who understand it. At ProfHacker, we believe in collaboration in and the sharing of knowledge. Therefore, each month, we publish a roundup of links around the web, links devoted to teaching in higher education. These are the Teaching Carnivals. [You can find previous carnivals on Teaching Carnival's home page.]

The teaching posts this month are extensive, and given that it’s summer and we “have summers off,” the wide-ranging nature of these posts was surprising. Let’s get started.

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.

Sara Q. Thompson, a Reference and Instruction Librarian at Briar Cliff University will compile teaching-related posts for Teaching Carnival 4.12.  You can send her your teaching-related links via email ( or Twitter (@librarienne). Keep in mind, that if you don’t send us your posts, we might miss them and they won’t get posted. So send them on! Lastly, if you are interested in hosting a future Teaching Carnival, please contact Billie Hara ( / @billiehara) for information.
