Readers of this blog may have noticed that the last six posts, and I wanted to just briefly give them some context. Teachers of technical writing who are in the pilot project have written some blog posts about their thoughts and experiences with the iPad so far. There will probably be a few more posts coming from other teachers.
Stuart Selber runs a teacher training course for new teachers of technical writing, and we have 11 instructors (grad students and full-time instructors) in the course who have been using the iPad throughout the term. Stuart has asked the teachers to use the iPad to read the textbook (Markel's Technical Communication, 9th edition) on iBooks, to work on their Teaching with Technology portfolios, and to explore other tasks related to teaching.
So these last six posts come from instructors about their experiences with the iPad after about twelve weeks with the device.
