Why You Should Blog

Kudos to the SpARC live blog project

Thanks to Gundolf Graml, Assistant professor of German, this years Spring Annual Research Conference was “live blogged” by students (and by Jim Diedrick, Associate Dean of the College and Gundolf Graml posted as well). Student contributors include Jayne Roberts ’14, Precious Sidwell ’14,  and Karmen Cook ’14.  The students met under the supervision of Gundolf Graml and then attended the conference, took notes and “live blogged”.  The results are nothing short of amazing.  It is, if you will pardon the sports metaphor, a home run on the first attempt. In the past student work fell into a vacuum after the presentations were over but with the live blog students, faculty and parents will be able to revisit excellent student academic presentations. Thanks to Gundolf, the students and Jim Diedrick for their efforts in making this happen.

  1. I agree-this was an exciting realization of a good idea. I’d like to see much more live blogging of ASC events–I think the events are worth covering, and while many of us can’t make all the events, they are worth knowing about and reading about, and noting. Blog on bloggers!

  2. I too would like to see more live blogging. An excellent idea. Many of the events may be better blogged than, gasp, filmed. We will need to do a little recruiting.
