Just finished my initial online conference chat with Christine from Salford. She saw our presentation at ALT-C in Nottingham and asked us to chat to some post-graduate students about our experiences. Rebecca and I are going to talk with them via their interwise online conferencing tool, about our experiences of blogging as a research tool. Specifically we’re going to talk about the ways we found blogging helped to reinforce our sense of community, both as a student community and within the wider academic community.
The conferencing tool was rather nice – voice and text chat with a neat ability to share URLs and even annotate things. Looking forward to it 😀
