Confessions of a blogademic

Later this morning I’ll be giving a talk by that title at the NEA Higher Education conference (don’t worry, the confessions aren’t forced or coerced at all; in fact, they’re treating me magnificently, and this year the conference is in Portland, OR, which is officially my new favorite city). The presentation is about the convergence of the blogosphere and academe (bonus online confession: I regularly draw from avfl in my academic work as a way to nudge the system into widening the range of “acceptable” scholarship), and part of the presentation (which draws largely from this article) will involve a field trip to avfl and the archives. So I wanted to preemptively say welcome to some of the site’s newest readers.

    Jethro, he’ll probably accept your invitation quicker than he would one from Ellie Mae.

    Congrats Dr. DH… Hope your new visitors realize it is not just the Beverly Hillbillies here.

    While I sometimes wonder just how effective the NEA has been at improving the learning systems I respect the art of TRYING to relay NEW INFORMATION to ppl and especially the phenomenal observation of ppl paying GOOD MONEY for ADVICE and then IGNORING IT!!!
