Let the blogging begin!

Barbara’s class (HISP 305: Spanish for Advanced Communication) has begun their adventure in blogging. The class, which in the past has worked as a somewhat traditional conversation class, is using blogging as a way to introduce students to one another as well as to the world, thus allowing spanish speakers both on and off of the campus to come in, comment, direct, cajoul, correct and whatever else happens along the way.

Yesterday they got their loaner iPods, so podcasting will be happening very soon. Stay tuned!

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
