This is the sixth year of the Writing Challenge and the traditional gift for the sixth anniversary in the UK is candy. Candy is pretty close to ice cream and for participating in the writing challenge, all participants will receive a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream.
This year’s challenge will begin the week of October 22nd and will be completed on November 12th. ALL instructors are invited to participate by writing 4 pieces of writing over 4 weeks that are each 16 sentences long (give or take). 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. Week one’s incentive is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. You pick the flavor and it will be delivered to your office. Spoon included.
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 22nd and conclude their 4-week run finishing Monday, November 12th. It is not difficult to write at least 16 sentences. In fact, you have just finished reading 16+ sentences in this blog post.
