In this activity, the students must submit a product in writing as a blog post and subsequently comment on a certain number of posts by other students. This will help train the students’ academic communication skills and ensure that they discuss topics included in the course.
The purpose of the activity is to train the students in written communication about topics included in the course. At the same time, they train their reflexivity and their use of subject-related terminology when commenting on posts written by fellow students. The activity may be seen as an alternative to student presentations in class and also has an inclusive and engaging effect in that it invites the students to be actively involved in the learning process offered by the course.
