Today’s workshop, led by David Ainsworth, focused on building and using a WordPress site in a pedagogical context. This teaching focus was an important part of the workshop since, as Dr. Ainsworth pointed out, WordPress sites can be used to build almost any kind of website (more and less effectively). He also made a strong case for the advantages of the public orientation of WordPress sites (as opposed to those on Blackboard) and the opportunities they create for student engagement with new audiences. He has made his slides and handout available for those who couldn’t make it or want to know more. There are lots of resources for working with WordPress – if you are in Arts & Sciences then e-Tech can help (with course sites and research sites) and of course the ADHC can always help you get started. Thanks for your contribution to our workshops, Dr. Ainsworth!
