Faculty Blogging: Academic Reputation, Rankings, and Scholarship
ND is rolling out Blogs at Notre Dame, a blogging platform using WordPress MU. We’re hoping to get some of our brilliant and interesting faculty members blogging. This raises a lot of questions:
There’s been a lot of talk about blogging for admissions and student recruitment, but should faculty members blog? Will that hurt or help their chances of tenure? Can it help a school’s ranking? Is blogging respectable?
I don’t mean for these to be the answers, but I am hoping this post will continue the discussion and shift some perceptions.
