For the first time in my teaching career I am teaching a first-year microeconomics unit. I thought I'd try to develop a blog to help maintain contact with students and to provide information. This is the result.
Students have access to online resources separate to this blog.
So far a number of students have approached me to ask about material on the blog but there has been next to no online commentary. It is an experiment and if it is revealled in student evaluations as being of little interest to students I will rethink or perhaps cancel the experiment.
Comments on the idea of using a blog as a teaching aid are welcome - particularly from fellow economics teachers. Of course if you are not an enrolled student in this unit you should place those comments here rather than on the Microeconomics blogsite.
