Categories: Teaching Strategies | Comments Off on Diablog examples from my classes

In preparation for our (me and KCF reunited!) upcoming workshop on blogging, I thought I would gather together some examples of how I have used the diablog assignment in my classes this year: queering desire, fall 2010: I already wrote about this assignment here. 30 students undergraduate upper-level course politics of sex, spring 2011 115 […]

Hi KCF! My students in feminist pedagogies put together a resource guide for using social media in feminist classrooms. Check it out! I am hoping to add in some more of thoughts about the blog as a resource on our welcome page soon. For now, I’m just happy to be done with the semester–so happy […]

I just had my final Queering Desire class. Such a great experience! Right now I don’t have time to write anything else about how my blog assignments did/didn’t work in the class (I still have lots of grading to do). For now, I want to highlight a few things from queering desire and my other […]

Hey KCF. It’s Thursday afternoon and I’m sitting at our regular table at 3 Tiers, remembering all of the great discussions that we had here over the summer. Before I eat my fabulous “devil’s food cupcake with mocha buttercream frosting,” I thought I would take a minute (okay, a few minutes) to offer up some […]

I’ve been really intrigued by SLP’s discussions on how you’ve been using Twitter in your courses. I really enjoyed reading about your live tweeting experiment on Trouble. In the spirit of her sharing about her pedagogical experiments I wanted to share one assignment that my students in my Chicana Gender & Sexuality Studies course completed […]

…or one reason to give your department for why teaching blogs and blogging while teaching is really important for the future of the discipline/feminist education This week in my Feminist Pedagogies class we are reading various articles that critically reflect on the value of social media in the feminist classroom (see schedule–10.27–for more information).

I found this source via twitter earlier today and, after tweeting with KCF, decided to post it for more diablogging: A Philosophy of Blogging from a new Chronicle of Higher Education blog called Old School, New School. BTW, I love how we have started tweet-a-logging too (or engaging in some twittersations…okay, I’ll stop now). I […]

So, I’m in the midst of re-reading Kevin Kumashiro’s Troubling Education: Queer Activism and Anti-oppressive Pedagogy for my feminist pedagogies class this afternoon. I have already mentioned his work–particularly his idea about shifting the goal of pedagogy from understanding to effect and the influence it has had on my vision of a troublemaking pedagogy (I […]

Just starting the six week of classes (wow!) and feeling overwhelmed…and sick. I always get sick in October. Oh well. Anyway, my semester is good so far. I’m proud of the blogging and tweeting in my classes–I really need to write an entry about my diablog assignment for my queering desire students (it’s the first […]

(so far) Now that we’re not necessarily working on an article for publication here on Diablogical! I thought it might be interesting to do a quick reflection on how course blogging has been going so far in the semester. I’m officially (at MSUM) in the sixth week of classes and have fallen into the easy […]

Hi Friend! So the craziness of the semester has begun and I am overwhelmed! It has been definitely too long since I wrote on this blog (or talked with you online/offline). This semester I have upped the ante in my classes (which I seem to do every year because I LOVE experimenting and pushing at […]

…in my class this semester so far. So I know I’m supposed to be working on my VCR post and my BB post for our radical teacher article, but I have all these thoughts on teaching with blogs that I feel I really need to write so I don’t forget them. 1. Due to our […]
