Carteret Community College’s Title 3 was generous enough to pay for Tammy and I to go to the 2009 IDEC South Regional Conference! It took place Oct 14-16 and was hosted by Meredith College in Raleigh.

The title was “Text, Twitter & Podcast: Reaching the Millennials”. In order to cover more territory, Tammy and I split up and attended different presentations whenever possible.
One of the workshops:
Weaving Together Stories: Making History Relevant through the Design Cosmology Blog.. This was presented by Patrick Lucas of UNC-G

This presentation was about combining more than one course. Professors working together. The students were expected to blog the whole 16 weeks. This was a great exercise in students working together, and learning to talk out loud about Design! According to Mr. Lucas, by the end of the 16 weeks…Major conversation between students! He felt the blogging enabled them to also talk out loud when they were together in lab, near the end of the semester. They did great on their oral exams/presentations.. Blogging was very effective here.
