A lot of good teaching goes on at dailyKos. But a lot of it doesn't get read by everyone who wants to read it, because diaries scroll by so fast.
This series is about diaries that teach and about things you want to learn. Could be any subject - an academic subject, a skill, a hobby, almost anything - but not diaries that simply inform, or it would include all of daily kos.
What I do is, each week, search for the tags 'teaching' and 'learning' and go through jotter's lists for diaries that teach. Then I'll post the list, with perhaps some brief comment, and open the floor to people who want to learn something specific.
You can help me by tagging diaries with 'teaching' or 'learning' when you see diaries that merit those tags, by reminding me of what I've missed, by recommending this diary, and by commenting.
