This is just a quick note to share with the community that I'm co-teaching a seminar on social media with Prof. Rita Raley this quarter. I'm very excited about this class and hope the students will dig our "social" approach - using a Ning network to coordinate the class, placing a premium on participation, and having a group project in lieu of final exam or paper. We're running the gamut from gaming to flash mobs, so there should be plenty of fun for all.
Check out the Ning site here: http://www.engl147.ning.com. Also, we'll be running a Twitter hashtag of #147.
