Online teaching tools, triggers, college ratings, plagiarism, and community colleges: Required Readings, 12.21.14
Happy solstice, whether it be winter or summer where you are!
We ran across a couple cool education-related web tools this week: one for students and teachers of English, and the other regarding environmental health and toxicology. In addition, citizen science can interest learners of all ages.
To pick up a thread of discussion periodically covered in SoD, this week brought more food for thought on trigger warnings in education, in this case regarding sensitivity when teaching rape law (you’ll also want to read these two responses to the original article: 1 and 2).
Being that proper citation and use of others’ information are among the topics I teach, I found this research on plagiarism in the ArXiv scientific repository quite interesting.
