Examples of Course Redesign Projects
- Develop learning activities or supplemental course resources specifically targeted for use on mobile devices or field-use.
- Students use online, interactive activities to review and augment text material, learn how to use software specific to the course, or equipment used in laboratory. Examples of activities include a combination of simulations, podcasts, streaming video, and online quizzes.
- Reduce face-to-face class meetings from four to two each week. Create online resources (such as recorded presentations, web conferences demonstrations, animations, simulations, videos, etc.) that allow students to cover key concepts of theory-based content. Allow students to practice their knowledge in online self tests. Use the remaining class meetings for discussion and group activities.
- Engage students in the course content by having student groups teach the rest of the class about a key concept in the course. Students create a wiki page or a multimedia project that teaches the other students about each concept.
- Students share and discuss their research or laboratory experiment data with their peers through online workbooks, wikis, blogs, or other electronic means to foster active and collaborative learning.
