College of Western Idaho (CWI) has joined the world of online blogging with the launch of three faculty blog posts on cwi.edu. The CWI Marketing Department has developed a blog platform to provide employees and students an opportunity to engage both the College and community. CWI’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Department has collaborated to create the College’s first blogs:
- Musings on the value of STEM courses by Willard Pack
- It’s called Research because you Re-Do it! by Nicole Frank
- Keeping Secrets! by Maia Kelley
Currently, blogs can be viewed at the bottom of related program pages—like Biology—on faculty and staff directory pages—like Willard Pack—and student club pages. As the College’s blog archive expands, they will be connected to department web pages along with a centralized CWI Blog Room. Blogs can be shared as recurring or one-time submissions.
More information can be found in the CWI Blog Guidelines on myCWI. Any faculty or staff interested in becoming a CWI blog contributor as an individual or as a department can contact Communications Representative II, Jake Garcin, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208.562.3106.
