Midterm Discussion 2007

questions for seeding midterm discussion

Part of this course is to push writing boundaries, and to test preconceptions about writing, about reading, about 'how' we think about writing in both electronic spaces and traditional spaces.

Our discussion over the next few days is not an exam or a debate, but a heuristic dialoge: an opportunity to think about and reflect on what you've been doing over the past few weeks. The questions on this page are some guides that I may call on to direct our attention.

getting started

Think back to how you looked at these matters at the beginning of this course.
Since the time when you wrote those entries,
How are you spending your time on your projects?

projects

What's going well? What's going better than expected?
I was a little unsure as to whether or not I'd be able to motivate myself and keep up with the pace I set for myself. I've suprised myself though and am right where I want to be at this point. I've really been able to buckle down and motivate myself to keep up on my work (whether I want to or not.)

What's going not so well? What unexpected problems have you encountered?
What are you going to do next?

writing spaces

Has keeping a blog/writing in a wiki changed your writing habits, and if so how?
Has keeping a blog/writing in a wiki twigged you into developing any new writing practices?
Has keeping a blog/writing in a wiki twigged you into developing any new writing strategies? that is, have you found yourself encountering new ways of addressing the new writing situations, eg: how you respond to others on a collaborative blog, or how to write a critique of a piece of writing posted to a wiki?
Has keeping a blog/writing in a wiki twigged you into experimenting with any new forms or genres of writing - either traditionally recognized (the sonnet; the aphorism....) or (purportedly) new (the list, the linked essay...)
Has keeping a blog/writing in a wiki changed your understanding of writing, or your understanding of your self as a language user? RedefiningBoundaries

realm of usefulness

As you see it now, how might you use a blog or wiki to support what kind of writing?
