Teaching Carnival 5.10

June’s Teaching Carnival was compiled by Billie Hara, a Lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Texas, Arlington.  You can reach her via email, Twitter, or through her blog, Crossing Borders. 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.

Know of a blog post (perhaps your own) that should be included in the next Teaching Carnival. . . ?

  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.

The State of Education

A last note: If you do not see your discipline represented in these Teaching Carnivals, it’s because we don’t know about you (or them). Please send them to the current compiler of the TC or to Billie Hara (email or twitter) and we’ll get them included next time. Better yet, volunteer to compile a Carnival yourself! We are always looking for more contributors for the Teaching Carnival, so if you have interest in compiling links for one month later this year, please contact Billie Hara for information.


Teaching Carnival 5.11: Billie Hara will compile July’s Teaching Carnival.  If you have links, images, thoughts, suggestions, please send them to her: email or twitter.
