Centripetal-Centrifugal

Just a quick bookmark post: Collin has a nice round-up of a discussion of “centripetal” versus “centrifugal” blogging. He notes that Clancy’s use of blogging in the classroom emphasizes the goal of creating “a close community ethos in the classroom,” while Collin expresses less interest in community building, emphasizing the goal of “having students looking outward.” For now, I just want to store this set of links so that I can return to it after MLA when I’ll be doing the bulk of my planning for srping semester.

Note: Clancy’s post provides a great overview of some of the instructional basics that many of my students have struggled with in the past. In the spring, I’d like to spend more time getting new bloggers up to speed, so this may be a good way to start.
