Some changes are afoot for NITLE blogging. We’re integrating our three current blogs (Techne, Liberal Education Tomorrow, and Perspectives) into one NITLE-mega-blog. Three reasons: as we’ve been blogging, we noticed topics continually crossing between blogs. One unified megablog will therefore be more clear, and will help us explore the integration of inquiry, pedagogy, and technology in, well, a more integrated way.
Second, the integration also helps us bring together diverse readers into a single space. We hope this level of integration helps facilitate connection and exchange between readers via comments and guest posts. (Yes, guest posts – let us know if you’d like to take a crack at one.)
Third, we want to take the conversation hosted by this blog in particular to another level. Specifically, we’ll be heading out into the Twitterverse to promote conversation about liberal education–today and tomorrow. We’ll use the #nitle hashtag to do this, and we invite you to join the conversation. Our goals: crowdsource intelligence around emergent trends in liberal education; facilitate connections between thinkers across the NITLE Network and beyond; place the NITLE conversation in circulation with many other conversations relevant to learning and teaching with technology. We encourage you to start using the #nitle hashtag with your tweets, and to use it in combination with other hashtags of interest.
The new blog will launch this Friday, February 12, and use this URL: http://blogs.nitle.org/. All previous content from the current blogs will remain available, although some URLs will change. (Current links will redirect to new ones.)
Watch this space, and get ready to update your bookmarks or RSS feeds. And, as ever, we’re eager to hear from you along the way.
