Abstract

An evaluation of blogging as a means for developing educational affordances that enhance characteristics of social interaction and reflective dialogue within learning communities. The researcher asks: what are the barriers to developing blogging as a social practice; and seeks to identify positive actions that will enhance the implementation of course blogging. The production of two separate research data sets, from staff and students, allows for a comparison that aims to identify disjunctions between staff conceptions of blogging and that of students. Offering a possibility for determining the particular set of educational affordances required to achieve the aims of the project.
