Nick is teaching a class on weblogs at the “other” UW (Wisconsin, not Washington or any of the many other Ws out there), and has put the syllabus up on a wiki for public perusal and enhancement. I had originally hoped to teach a complementary course here at UB that could share in the fun, but since I’m not doing an undergraduate course in the spring, we’ll have to see if autumn semester is a possibility.
So consider this a call for participation of sorts. Help out by (a) contributing to Nick’s syllabus, (b) letting him know if you have other ways of helping out, and (c) letting me or him or someone know if you might be interested in a joint class on the social aspects of weblogging in the autumn. I think it would be neat if we could do something autonomous enough that it wouldn’t require a lot of administrative overhead, but would provide oportunities for our students to read and comment on each others’ blogs across campuses.
