professorial ethics and boundaries

Elouise and George have written a bit lately on the issue of students reading professorial blogs, and on professor/student relationships generally.

Like Chuck (who commented on Elouise’s post), I find that I’m not entirely comfortable discussing this topic in a forum where I know that students are regular readers and participants. I think, however, that there’s real value in a community of colleagues discussing these questions.

So, I thought I might set up a private forum somewhere (where? I don’t know. I’d love an alternative to Yahoo! Groups for mailing list or forum capability, but I don’t know of a good one off the top of my head) for this discussion. If you’re interested, let me know (ell/at/mail/dot/rit/dot/edu), and I’ll “include you in.”
