  1. I really love the idea of using social media as a way to reflect on and share learning publicly and openly. Scholars often do this together, but students have the opportunity to see how these knowledges bases are formed. There is this great article by Anne-Marie Deitering and Kate Gronemyer that I’ve found useful in my own teaching https://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/concern/articles/vt150k188?locale=en

    Do you have any suggestions for which social media tools to use in the activities, especially for one-shot IL classes?
