BlogShop del Norte (UBC)

Recently Brian Lamb and Jim Sibley conducted a Canadian Blogshop at the University of British Columbia, and plentifully acknowledged the materials in our BlogShop from down here in the far south Canadian hinterland province of Arizona ;-)

Actually the UBC version takes it a notch further by posting the workshop materials in a wiki. I liked their idea of creating a BlogLines account with RSS feeds from the workshop and it’s participants’ play-blogs.

However, I must admit being a bit scared at the look of Jean the Blogging Grad Student.

In addition to this work, other recent blogshop-type activities include:
* ETUG BlogTalk
* Nick Olejniczak’s A Course About Weblogs (syllabus done as a wiki).

If there are more, please let me know.

The more the merrier, and I say in developing your local blog introduction eforts… beg, borrow, and steal as much as possible from other efforts.

Update (a few hours later) See also Ginger’s Blogs in Education “This page is designed to provide you some resources if you want to get started using blogs for yourself or with your students. The use of blogs in instructional settings is limited only by your imagination.” It is worth checking out if only for the graphic of “The Blog”

If this kind of stuff has any value, please support me monthly on Patreon or a one time PayPal kibble toss

  1. “the far south Canadian hinterland province of Arizona”

    Oh man, if only that were the case. We’re entering our wintry rainy season here in Vancouver, and I’m experiencing an intense longing for some desert.

  2. Hi Allan

    Don’t be scared of Jean’s looks….that’s what I looked like after only 18 days in Arizona…it must be something to do with Arizona….or perhaps the 18 day trip kakaking down the Grand Canyon
