RESOURCES: Communication & Facilitation
Deep into the dog days of the summer semester, I'm trying to follow Amy Gahran's excellent advice about no-pressure blogging, so I won't feel too bad about having taken a few days off from posting.
I have been collecting posts from more industrious bloggers, however, so I'll share a few of these today ;)
