When is blogging part of the academic conversation? - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

University of Colorado education professor Scott McLeod writes on his personal blog about the benefits of faculty members blogging as a way to build citations, grow a following in a research area, and potentially, to make the case for tenure. McLeod, who has received thousands of views and hundreds of academic citations of his blog posts, suggests that digital publishing is light years ahead of traditional placement in journals for visibility and regard in the teaching profession. He argues that the lack of teachers publishing online does a disservice to research and industrial communities, and stagnates opportunities for academe to positively influence legislative impact.
