A blog is a great way to have students reflect on topics, issues, and themes from a course. Encourage students to write brief (100 words or less) blog posts. Have students post a minimum number of summaries, for example, 4 or 5 during the course to be reviewed by the instructor and other classmates. The instructor should respond/comment to posts modeling constructive feedback for students. Encourage students to review and comment on postings by classmates. This activity can also be done by assigning certain topics to individuals.
