Web 2.0 and Faculty-Student Interaction

The New York Times has an article that looks at how Web 2.0 tools and the popularity of ratemyprofessors.com has impacted the kind of online dialogue that faculty have with students. Faculty interviewed for the piece discuss how they use tools like MySpace and Facebook to give a sense of themselves as a person to students outside of their course. The article also looks at a popular new web video series on MTVu called “Professors Strike Back” where faculty talk about their experiences with students.
