Twitter in Higher Education

Tiffany Gallicano, Assistant Professor, School of Journalism and Communications
January 27, 2010

Are there ways to get students more involved in following course content in large lecture courses? Twitter is a simple way for people to connect and follow content. It allows students to interact with topics within an active learning forum. In addition, it provides an alternative way for students to ask questions and share opinions.

Professor Gallicano has made her presentation available here: http://prpost.wordpress.com/2010/01/30/in-class-tweeting-in-a-large-lecture-class/, which also includes some other resources.
