    • Student Comment: Cultural Experience at Rancho La Mentada
      • “ Instead of staying at a hotel, I stayed at a family ranch in cabins, very far away from the city. Instead of eating at a restaurant, I had homemade traditional meals. Instead of visiting museums, I learned first hand about the culture from the Kumeyaay [themselves]. Instead of going on a city tour, I went on a tour of the vast land around the ranch. Instead of taking [another] form of transportation, I went on horseback!”
    • RTM 404: Student Learning Outcomes

      • Outcome 4: Strategize collaborations among diverse tourism stakeholders representing government, business, environment and culture.
      • Outcome 5: Communicate and mediate clearly and with a style that supports the purposes of the intended tourism audience.
    • Student Command of Learning Outcomes: 1=No Command…5=Very High Command
    • Summer 2007
      • The goal was to “blend” RTM 305 in a comprehensive manner in which overall course goals and learning outcomes were addressed. The major feature was creating the initial two Captivate lectures. I also initiated use of rubrics, UDL statements and closed captions, and SALG at the conclusion of the course. I completed the WebQuest during the summer.
    • Fall 2007—RTM 305 Major Design Changes
      • The blended approach represented a comprehensive treatment of course goals and learning outcomes. The SALG at the end of the semester showed student command of all six learning outcomes at a level between high and very high (4.03-4.31).
      • I revised and expanded the Captivate lectures to seven and used online resources from the WebQuest to offer “Free Choice Fridays” so everyone in the class would have access to that information (that is, days that traditionally have lower attendance.)
      • I implemented the WebQuest.
    • Fall 2007—RTM 404 Major Design Features
      • Again, the blended approach represented a comprehensive treatment of course goals and learning outcomes. The SALG at the end of the semester showed student command of all five learning outcomes ranging from 3.83-4.43 (high).
      • I offered online assignments for Halloween and Thanksgiving eve as well as time from class some nights (early release) to compensate for efforts online.
