Blog @ Work

Swansea University, where I work, has quietly established a WordPress blogging system that anyone who has a University login can use to create a blog. This means that I no longer need to worry about providing something myself and should also make introducing blogging to my students a breaze. I created my blog, which I’m calling @the.coalface, and I intend to use it for reflective issues around e-learning, my teaching, research and University life in general. I’ll still continue to use this blog for more generally interesting postings, but it may become less work focussed.

Clyne Guardens in Bloom

It’s May Bank Holiday today and we went for a stroll around Clyne Gardens which is always at its best at this time of year. Azaleas and Rhododendrons are in full bloom and are a riot of reds, purples, yellows and pinks. As usual, more pictures have been posted to [Flickr](http://www.flickr.com/photos/cpjobling/sets/72157604901590749/).
