A Blog Without a Bicycle - In Print

"Community Beyond the Classroom: Theory Through Practice" Appears in Feminist Collections 28.4

...And it's an article in the "Blogs and Other E-Tools for Women's Studies" round-up by yours truly. A taste:
As previous round-ups have revealed, weblogs provide strong pedagogical tools for women’s and gender studies practitioners. By bringing blogs into the classroom as a novel forum for course work and discussion, instructors can help students practice important skills for critical analysis, writing proficiency, and technological literacy while also strengthening their classroom community and creating a space to continue in-class conversations that are cut short by time restrictions. By bringing classrooms to the blogosphere, instructors initiate an expansion of the discussion of feminist theory from the isolation of the academy to more publicly accessible debate.

A big kudos to editors JoAnne Lehman and Phyllis Holman Weisbard on an excellent edition with many great resources for practitioners working in girls' studies as well.

Please note that as my M.A. thesis project is complete, the George Washington University is no longer overseeing research conducted in conjunction with this blog (effective June 2007 to present). The Informed Consent Materials created while this blog was under GWU's IRB oversight are still available for your information and the principles outlined in them are still being used as a general guide for my continued work.
