El caso es que aunque este curso EUFOL “Los blogs al servicio de la docencia” está centrado en Poliblogs, siempre cabe la posibilidad de utilizar los servicios web avanzados UPV instalando un WordPress “completo”.

Una primera opción fuera del paraguas UPV puede ser operar con WordPress.com que es un vivero de instalaciones de WordPress (con varios planes de pago). Si se quiere mayor libertad (y mayor control del site) siempre se puede optar por descargarse el programa (desde WordPress.org) e instalarlo en una amplia gama de hosts como Bluehost, HostGator, SiteGround, etc.

Esta infografía explica las diferencias entre WordPress.com (free) y WordPress.com

Andersen and Schiano (2014) Teaching with Cases

Teaching with cases focuses on practical advice that can be easily implemented. It will be especially useful for anyone teaching in a setting in which case teaching is not widespread.

The book is organised according to the three elements requiere for a great case-based course:

  1. Foundation: Planning the structure of the course and establishing mutual expectations with your students.
  2. Flow. Mstering the techniques of creating a lively classroom discussion
  3. Feedback: Communicating effective and actionable feedback to your students both during and after the course.

Teaching with Cases is ideal for new case method instructors or experienced case teachers looking to improve their discussion leadership skills.
