Teaching Carnival 5.02

[September’s Teaching Carnival is from Roger Whitson, a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) at Emory University. Roger blogs on his website, on Emory Library’s blog, and on Teaching Romanticism - and can be contacted via email at rogerwhitson [at] or via Twitter @rogerwhitson. 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. –Billie Hara]

For September’s Carnival, we have a long list of syllabi and job market manifestos to help with the challenges of the start of the school year! We also chronicle Mozilla’s Open Badge Project controversy, the role of technology in pedagogical experiments and professional development, and the ongoing evolution of the relationship between libraries, Universities, and undergraduates.

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.

Delaney Kirk, an educator and an edublogger, will compile teaching-related posts for November’s Teaching Carnival 5.3. You can reach her via email ( or on Twitter (@delaneykirk).  Delaney blogs at Ask Dr. KirkKeep 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.
