Engage students through blogging

Engaging learners in critical reflection

University of Edinburgh


Transforming practice An assessed blog on a text of the week was introduced on some courses as a pilot. The blog was written by one student, but commented on by all students before the weekly face-to-face tutorial or seminar. The blogging component formed 10% of the assessment total – 5% for writing the blog on a selected week, and 5% for commenting on others’ blogs during the remaining nine weeks of the course – replacing the 10% reserved for oral presentations on honours courses. (On one course, the blogging component replaced an essay.)
