Nine Chadron State College students majoring in justice studies will be blogging their London Trip experiences this month. Dr. Tracy Nobiling, professor, will be accompanying a total of 13 students majoring in justice studies on the trip from May 12 through May 25. Dr. Don King, professor and department chair, and Dr. Patti Blundell, professor, will be accompanying 14 education students on the same trip.
Nobiling said her students had the choice to either submit daily written journal entries or to blog daily as a requirement for credit.
In 2011, the group on the London Trip participated in some blogging, but Nobiling feels that taking several iPads this year and being able to access more reliable Wi-Fi signals should improve the blogging experience this time around. Some students’ video entries may possibly be recorded and posted along with their written entries and still photos at: http://www.csc.edu/justicestudies/.
The Justice Studies group includes a range of students from a first-time flyer to veteran travelers. Some students have opted for side trips to Paris, Dublin and Edinburgh during the venture.
“Blogging is great for multiple reasons. It fulfills a course requirement, parents and friends can track the students through their daily blog posts and London Trip alumni can follow the activities of the 2013 group,” Nobiling said.
