4x4x16 Writing Challenge – Year 5!


It is the fifth anniversary of the 4x4x16 Writing Challenge at NMC and what better way to celebrate than to participate in the challenge.

The 4x4x16 Writing Challenge will begin the week of the October 16th and will run until November 13th.  ALL instructors are invited to participate by writing 4 pieces of writing over 4 weeks that are each 16 sentences long.  Each week instructors will have their writing published on the teaching@NMC site and receive a small incentive provided by CIE for completing their writing.  The first week’s prize is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.  You pick the flavor and it will be delivered to your office.  Spoon included.

Ice Cream Pints

You write, and CIE rewards you for sharing your thoughts about teaching and learning.  You can look back at past years’ writing by visiting the 4x4x16 archives.

What are the rules?

The only rule is that you need to write about teaching and learning.  Please don’t let the technology discourage you.  If you can write a Word document, we can help you put your writing on the website.

The first posts will be published on October 23rd and conclude their 4-week run finishing Monday, November 13th.  Sixteen sentences are not much to write.  In fact, you have just finished reading 16+ sentences in this blog post.  Who likes free ice cream?
