Making weblogs

I am available to help CESL teachers and students create and use weblogs.
Office Hours: M-R 11-12, F 10-12, or by appointment; Faner 3235 or LMC
Students may also see me during these times for writing assistance.

CESL Conversation

Currently an English conversation table meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30-5:00, in the International Lounge of the Student Center. It would be great to have English Speakers join us as volunteer conversation partners. If you or someone you know might be interested in participating please contact me. An hour every week would be greatly appreciated and we can work around your schedule. Also please remind CESL students about the conversation table. Thanks for helping me get the word out.

teaching teachers

This weblog was recently submitted as part of a TESOL CALL-IS Internet Fair proposal. It's not that it's the greatest weblog or even the best part of our system; it's more that it is the only one that gets close to the process of education in use of weblogs that we've been trying here.

The proposal is in the names of Laura Halliday and me (Tom); I submitted it recently.

Though our success in actually teaching teachers has been mixed, I can at least say that I've learned a lot about it, and have something to share.

weblogs in the classroom

I hope everyone had a good break and a good New Year. Welcome back. If you are looking around for stuff to help you get a fresh start, here you go:

Here's an article that tells a little more about what we're doing:

Weblogs for use with esl classes, by Aaron Campbell. He also has links to his own weblogs for his own classes; I think you'll find this interesting.

By the way I'm looking at other servers since we've had some trouble with The more I look, though, the more I'm inclined to stay where we are. For more info about this search visit me here.

See you soon! -TL
