GEOG 225 Domain in Professor Meymand’s Own Words

“For Geog 225, we established a domain to display students’ blogs on WordPress.  For many students, this was their first attempt at blogging for academic purposes.  For their blogs, students were able to select what they wished to blog about for particular chapters, and therefore students were able to expand upon topics within a chapter that were of particular interest to them.  We also expressed the importance of having an audience for our work, and having it out in the open, so students also tweeted a link to their blogs.  Many students added reflective components to their blogs, links to other sites, and relevant photos/videos.  The blogs on WordPress provided a creative outlet for student engagement, and will be something I’ll continue in the future.”

BIOL 389


This  Knight Domains example is from Dr. Adam Brandt who uses a wiki application on his domain to provide an interactive digital assignment around African Wildlife Conservation that he builds on from year to year. This wiki was deployed on the domain and used as an assignment as part of the Fall 2019 / Winter 2019 global seminar and he plans to use this platform each time the course is run so that all students are building a common resource over time.

BIOL 389 Domain in Dr. Brandt’s Own Words

“This course is designed to be a platform for students to explore their own interests in the context of African Wildlife Conservation and Health. The lecture topics and field experiences provide an introduction to wildlife management, ecology, human health, and South African history. However, this wiki assignment allows students to further explore a topic specific to their interests and career goals while sharing that information with others.”
