The group blog on creating and sharing teaching resources needs a name. I am hereby announcing a contest in which the winner, chosen through a complicated caucus-based process, will be sent a compact disc music mix created by me, featuring fantastic tracks by artists you’ve never heard of. The intended audience of and participants in the blog are those who teach in English departments, although their areas of specialization within that discipline are open.
Teaching. The discipline of English. The open-source philosophy. Keep these things in mind, dear reader, as you vie with countless competitors for the international honor that winning this contest will bring you.
Oh, wait. Scratch that. ;)
I find myself wanting to combine “blog” with “pedagogy,” but “Pedablogy” just doesn’t have the ring it should. Or maybe it does.
is the “pedagogical palimpsest” too much of a mouthful?
a verb or a noun
In the spirit of LawMeme, I’ll throw LitMeme or TeachMeme into the mix, although I don’t particularly like either.
Francois’s more recent suggestion is quite good, though.
How many times can we enter?
Thanks to everyone for their contributions. I’ll hold off on expressing a preference.
My sources tell me there are no limits on how many times you can enter.
See blog run. Run blog. Run.
Accessing the 1st grade primer within. Or back to Jason.
“Pedablogy” makes a good expletive, don’t you think?
What’s wrong with something like “Open Source Teaching Resources”? Good stuff, free.
I like BlogN too. Can’t think of anything clever myself right now. But there is a lot to be said for simplicity and transparency, as Scott’s post suggests. Open Source English? Though I suppose that’s what subtitles are for. Englog sounds like a cloying holiday drink. See blog run could work, maybe with some cute illustrations from an old reader.
Hmm. I may post again.
Actually, I’m starting to like Pedablogy.
Or how about Wordswap?
Hmmm…Now I’m getting defensive about LitMeme and TeachMeme!
