The other thing I am thinking about is whether I should continue to process my thinking about things like assessment here on this blog. For example, I was about to write a post about my thoughts on assessing clinical skills at a distance. I have to put together an exam that tests certain clinical skills and plan to write a blog post about it because:
- I will have a written record of my thoughts to look back on;
- I will be contributing to educators' knowledge about this issue;
- I will be receiving ideas and advice from others who have already developed this sort of assessment;
- I will have evidence of my work for my ePortfolio.
On the other hand, if students read this blog and contributed their own ideas to help me develop their assessment...how cool would that be?!
What do you think? If you are an educator, what do you blog about related to your job? If you are a student, how do you feel about reading the thoughts of your lecturer in relation to your course/program?
