Blogging as an SDL instructional strategy?

Our college invited faculty to work on a project aimed at exploring the concepts of self--directed learning so that we might better equip our students to be successful in more independent learning environments. Five faculty members began the project in the fall of 2004. Three faculty members are continuing the work and are in the process of pre-piloting a self-directed learning inventory along with some instructional strategies that they have found in the literature related to self-directed learning. Utilizing a blog may be another instructional strategy that could assist learners in becoming more self-directed.
