Positive Feedback on a Blogging Assignment

A former student who is now excelling in grad school took a moment to share her thoughts about my blogging portfolio assignment, which is usually 25-40% of a student’s grade.

In April, a different former student who had blogged for me  in several classes, whom I invited as a career workshop guest, surprised me by saying: “Every job I’ve had since I graduated from college has been because of my blog.”

Both of these students would have put their energy into any assignment on the syllabus, so I should give credit where credit is due. Both students chose to continue their blogging for independent projects after their coursework with me was finished, and that added value was really where their blogging showed off their abilities and accomplishments.
