Teaching Carnival 5.03

Photo from the New Jersey State Fair[October’s Teaching Carnival was compiled by Delaney Kirk, a management professor at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. You can reach her via email or on Twitter .  Delaney is both an educator and an edublogger--ask her a question or check out her tips on teaching effectiveness at Ask Dr. Kirk. This month she gathers tips on teaching, advice to share with our students, ways to utilize technology in the classroom, and suggestions for personal development, along with a challenge to write that academic book you’ve been putting off. –Billie Hara]

And if you’ve been putting off writing that academic book or dissertation, Charlotte Frost invites us all to participate in the first Academic Book Writing Month challenge (tweet about it using hash tag #AcBoWriMo). You can also join NaNoWriMo to start that novel you’ve been telling people you plan to write someday. Both challenges begin on November 1st.

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:

Mikhail Gershovich, Director of the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute & Writing Across the Curriculum coordinator at Baruch College, City University of NY, will compile the next Teaching Carnival (5.04).  You can reach him via email or on Twitter.

Keep in mind, that if you don’t send us your posts, we might miss them. So send them on!  We want to include you in our next Teaching Carnival.  Lastly, we are looking for more contributors for the Teaching Carnival, so if you have interest in compiling links for one month, please contact Billie Hara for information.
