A year of BIO230 blogging
Posted by ycpmicro
October 24th is my one year anniversary for maintaining this forum as a supplement for the course/personal exercise in writing for myself. During this time, I along with a dozen students have generated almost 160 posts on pretty much any topic that happened to be of interest me at the time. It was important to me when I started this project that it would be a two-way mechanism of interaction, and the student comments and participation were of paramount importance.
I’ve had a number of postings that I’ve been particularly fond of over the past year. I have really enjoyed the “House Party” themed reviews of the House TV show, especially when the episode reiterates a topic that has just been talked about in class, which happens with incredible regularity. I have also enjoyed the “Bit ‘O History” vignettes, as I can often have fun with Photoshop with the pictures. Student postings have also been very enlightening and fun, for instance this submission from Tony during the Summer 2011 class.
So although we’ve hit a milestone, I’m looking forward to the next year and the coming discussions. Keep the comments coming, and if you find something neat about Microbiology in the news you’d like to let everyone know about, write it up and we can talk about it together!
