Call for the Blogroll (UPDATE)

You may have noticed, if you pay attention to such things, that I cleaned up the Blogroll a bit yesterday. I deleted the dead links and the rarely used links; included in the cleanup were Kojo’s former blog (now deleted), District’sNotTheBossofMe, and The Truman Lounge (not quite dead, but not active at all). I was going to link to Truman’s Teaching and Learning Center blog, but that is pretty dead too. I also cut the OIT Lounge, which had little and infrequent content, and a few things that I had put on there for me so I wouldn’t lose them (e.g., the list of philosophy blogs). Also cut were the links that no one has clicked on over the last year and some links that were primarily K-12 focused.

I have added Wright College’s Instructional Support blog (been meaning to do that for a while, actually–Maureen Mulcrone is doing good work over there with it), and a link for the Chronicle of Higher Ed. I have a few ideas for other things I can add, but I’m taking suggestions, too. I am happy to link to any faculty blog, project, or PD source (such as a professional organization) or any resource that you’d like to have easy, consistent access to. Put them in the comments, and I’ll put them on the blogroll.

Thanks, in advance!

UPDATE: Don wrote to suggest adding Academic Affairs@HWC (Margie’s blog), which I forgot was a blog, too! Did that. He also suggested a link to Five Books (which I love and read regularly); it used to be a feature of The Browser, but was spun off to its own site. Done and done.

BlogRoll Additions?

Perhaps you’ve noticed the BlogRoll to the right. Maybe you’ve even clicked on a couple to see what’s there.

What’s there, right now, are some of the blogs and Web sites that I look at semi-regularly and have found helpful to my teaching (or thinking about my teaching). There are some general ones, there, but some philosophy-specific sites, too.

What other sites should we have there?

I ask because I think it would be cool (and helpful) to have a site to go to if I want to find out what Historians or Mathematicians or Child Psychologists or Biologists are talking about amongst themselves.

And it’s a big ol’ Web. Post a comment with your favorite discipline specific or teaching general sites, and I’ll put a link up in the Blog roll so everyone can go there, too, now and then…

UPDATE (3/24): If you want to post sites in the comments (please do, please do), limit yourself to two per comment, even if that means posting multiple comments. Otherwise the filter will mark them as Spam. If that happens, no worries, I can save them and approve them, but it may take a day or so for me find them. Feel free to put up multiple comments, though!
