Teaching Thursday: Social Networks and Student Expectations

As is becoming my habit (and I promise it won’t continue for too long), I’ll redirect you to Teaching Thursday for today’s blog post.  The number of visits to Teaching Thursday have consistently increased, so please, take a minute to check it our and show my latest collaborative blog project some love!  And, if you are UND faculty think about joining the conversation.

Today, Bret Weber and I bantered back and forth about the 24/7 professor and the role of social networks in changing student expectations regarding access to information and individuals.  I argue that the ubiquity of social networking applications makes constant contact with people and information a reasonable expectation.  And it only goes to reason that faculty, who constantly demand greater commitments from students to their academic pursuits, would exist to some extent within the the web of networking applications.

Check out our banter.
