    There is a recent blog posting that I think might be of interest to folks participating in this project. Nate Kogan writes a blog on teaching and learning and shared information on a presentation he is preparing on “Personal Learning Networks”.
    I think it might be helpful for others to look at how he keeps up and compare to what you do to stay abreast of topics you care about. Maybe you have a favorite technique you would like to share?

    There is a recent article that should be of interest to this group. In Inside Higher Ed on the 22nd, there was a report on an anthropological study of student research practices at 5 Illinois institutions.
    It’s worth reading not just for what it reveals about students, but also about faculty – as in this particular quote:
    “Several recent studies by the nonprofit Ithaka S+R have highlighted the disjunct between how professors view the library and how the library views itself: library directors see the library as serving primarily a teaching function; professors see it above all as a purchasing agent. Miller and Murillo heard echoes of that in their study. “I think that what happens is the librarians know how to search for sources, but sometimes don’t know how to do research,” one anthropology professor told them. ”

    A recent posting in “In the Library With the Leadpipe” might be of interest to our group. See a posting by Carleton reference librarians for an interesting report on how they are working with evaluating writing on campus and what it means for their teaching efforts.
