I’m Dr. Tammy Powley, and I am an assistant professor of English at Indian River Community College where I teach composition, literature, and more recently, blogging classes. My weblog classes are currently offered through the college’s Lifelong Learning Institute as well as the Corporate and Community Training Institute, and starting in the Spring 2009, I will teach a web-based/blog composition I class. Students enrolled in this class will receive credit for ENC1101 as they learn the basics of blogging. Feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information if you’d like to sign up for this class.
Along with teaching, I am also a writer and have extensive experience writing content for various networks. My previous blogging credits include writing for b5media.com as well as Creative Weblogging, where I worked as the company’s Executive Editor. I have my own weblog now dedicated to writing about crafting and my career as a writer/crafter/teacher: Crafty Princess Diaries.
I set up this weblog, which I titled Blog Class Info, in order to help with my blog classes, both as a way to demonstrate how to blog and also as a way to provide a digital storage area for class materials. You’ll find handouts, helpful links, and Power Point presentations. For anyone who wants to learn about blogging or teach others, feel free to use what you find here as long as you provide proper credit and do not publish this material in other forms without my consent.
