For my FTI buddies, I thought I would collect a few links on teaching with blogs and post them here. The list could probably be better organized and there are probably better collections of links and information already out there, but this could be a start. (You’ll probably be very interested to see Marissa Ferrara’s blog assignment and evaluation rubric.)

I’ll add more later?
