Charleston - It has been an educational term. With a teaching load of four classes, it has been difficult to find time to complete other activities. Add to the mix of four classes, I completed major redesigns of each of the classes last summer, implementing a range of new activities included flipping the classroom, incorporating project-based learning, and consciously incorporating a model of instruction that closely follows Bloom's taxonomy. Students start with course content via reading and learning modules composed of videos, Websites, case studies, and questions and them prepare for class by completing a research assignment or reviewing a case study, In class, we work with the course content and process student research along with incorporating other case studies and activities to make the book content real. Students then demonstrate their mastery of the content via completion of application projects.
More on this when I get my blog up and running next term.
