Blogging in the English department

Blogging continues to flourish at UVM, as Meg Thomas discovers in a nice article in today’s issue of UVM’s The View. This blog gets some good exposure there, but I’m lucky to be in a department that is pretty blog savvy. Last night Philip Baruth (the mastermind behind Vermont Daily Briefing), Huck Gutman, and I attended a great talk on “Why Read Blogs” by our colleague Richard Parent, whose blog Digital Digressions also deserves a spot on everyone’s blogroll. Our colleagues Lisa Schnell and Andrew Barnaby have also been using blogs for some of their courses. Thanks in great part to the fine work of UVM’s Center for Teaching and Learning, this is a pretty exciting place to be these days.
