Join the ISU community of teachers online!


ISUTEACH and ISUTEACH-ONLINE-L are unmoderated internet discussion lists at ISU. There is no cost to subscribe. Subscribers receive all messages posted to the lists and all postings go to everyone on the lists. “Unmoderated” means there is no screening or censorship of messages.

What’s the purpose of ISUTEACH & ISUTEACH-ONLINE-L?

ISUTEACH and ISUTEACH-ONLINE-L provide forums for conversations about teaching at ISU, in face-to-face and online environments, respectively. We post articles of interest and announcements about workshops and funding opportunities. Individual subscribers post questions, concerns, and ideas to which others may respond and offer assistance. From time to time, the listservs have been known to host some lively discussions.

How time consuming are ISUTEACH & ISUTEACH-ONLINE-L?

Traffic is fairly light on these lists. We ask subscribers to follow listserv etiquette, including not posting any personal messages to the list and making the content of the message clear in the subject line and first couple of lines of the message. Thus, it is easy to skim and delete messages that don’t interest you.
