Interested in getting your advising message out to students quickly? Looking to provide insight & tips for students? Want to be a master of your web content?
Well you CAN! Many advisors are blogging their content for student advisees. This is a quick method of information distribution and a great way to “stay in touch” with students.
Thanks goes out to Joshua Gaynor (from Columbia University) who prompted an inquiry about other advising blogs and here’s just a few I started archiving on my wiki:
