Ever wish that you could find all of STP’s resources on a given topic in one easy, unified way? So do we! That’s why we’ve been working on a project to tag our resources (teaching materials, eBooks, syllabi, blog posts, you name it) with common words such as “statistics”, “development”, “social”, and of course, “engagement”! If you’re inclined to help us, your role would be to simply review a resource (e.g., a quick glance), determine the tags that best fit, and add them. We’d provide the list of items to tag, starting with our teaching resources, and a schedule so that this big task can be chunked up into manageable pieces. Sound like something you’re interested in for a little bit of “service to discipline” credit or just because you’re an obsessive organizer? Then drop a line and your CV by April 30, to Jon Westfall, STP Internet Editor, at email@example.com.
