First of all, we realize that starting a blog is not exactly cutting edge. If we claimed that we were breaking new ground by launching our blog then it would be fair to ask what year we think this is. Blogs have been a mainstay of the Internet for more than a decade now. Universities and teaching & learning offices have made good use of them as a way to distill information, share ideas and encourage communication between educators, bloggers and readers. In starting CTSI Focus, we are not here to reinvent what is already done well—why fix something that isn’t broken?—but to join in on the conversation.
