  15. 15. Example   “The  anima:on  was  very  helpful  and   clear.  Personally,  diagrams,  videos  and   drawings  are  tools  that  help  me  to  learn   best…  and  this  anima:on  was  a  good   example  of  that.”  -­‐  Student       “I  liked  the  video  very  much.  It  was  clear,   did  not  go  too  fast,  and  the  labels  helped   me  iden:fy  what  I  was  looking  at.  The   drawings  were  colorful  so  it  was  easy  to   see  where  everything  was  going  and  what   the  lipoproteins,  enzymes,  etc.  were   doing.  Thanks.”  -­‐  Student       The  anima:on  was  well  received  and  by   making  it  available  to  students  on  Bb,  I   feel  more  confident  that  students  have   the  tools  they  need  to  comprehend  this   por:on  of  the  material.     15      -­‐  Daniela  Geleva,  Ph.D.  
  16. 16. 2.  Develops  reciprocity  &  coopera:on  among  students   Arthur  Ellis,  Ph.D.    Professor,  Educa:on     Wicks,  D.,  Ellis,  A.,  &  Lumpe,  A.  (2013).  The  Use  of  Collabora:ve  Tools  and     Student  Percep:on  of  Social  Presence.  Will  present  at  the  EdMedia  2013:     World  Conference  on  Educa:onal  Media  and  Technology,  Victoria,  BC,  Canada.  
  17. 17. •  “Well,  we  were  down  to  the  wire,  but  our  team   was  able  to  band  Example   complete  a  well-­‐ together  and   wriDen,  thought  provoking  essay  for  the  fourth   phase.    Although  (Student  1),  in  all  her  travels,   had  difficulty  accessing  a  computer,  (Student  2)   and  I  were  able  to  prepare  the  structure  of  the   outline  and  rough  essay.    Then,  (Student  1)  was   able  to  weave  in  her  ideas  and  edits  when  she   was  able.    Overall,  I  feel  we  work  very  well  as  a   team.    Communica:on  is  key;  I  appreciate  that   (Student  1)  was  able  to  give  us  a  heads-­‐up  on  her   travel  plans/requirements,  so  that  (Student  2)   and  I  could  move  forward  knowing  (Student  1)   would  jump  in  when  she  was  able.”  –  Student  3

  24. 24. [It  is]  the  literaliza:on  of  our  reconcilia:on  mission,  that  it  is  not   over  but  you  keep  on  working  towards  it.  And  the  blog  becomes   this  collec:ve  memory  that  inspires  students  to  break  through  the   aliena:on  and  remember  together,  not  individually.  It  does  social   work.  It  is  itself  an  agent  of  reconcilia:on.  –  Kimberly  Segall,  Ph.D.   the  literaliza:on  of  our  reconcilia:on  mission     24

  27. 27. How  can  you  get  started?   •  Know  that  you  don’t  have  address  all  seven   principles   •  Iden:fy  a  problem  you  want  to  solve  with   your  teaching   •  Consult  with  colleagues  and  instruc:onal   technology  staff  about  possible  solu:ons   •  Start  small  
  28. 28. “Changes”  to  a  new  program  I  am  proposing   1.  Each  course  is  team-­‐taught  by  a  full-­‐ :me  SPU  professor  and  an   experienced  prac::oner  in  the  field.   2.  The  program  uses  a  cohort  model   with  a  fall  quarter  start.   3.  The  program  has  45  credits.  The   seven  required  courses  are  five  credit   courses.  All  elec:ves  (6)  are  one   credit  courses.  The  program  begins   with  a  one-­‐credit  orienta:on  and   ends  with  a  three-­‐credit  prac:cum.     4.  The  six  elec:ve  courses  are  delivered   through  the  Center  for  Professional   Educa:on.  This  is  done  for  three   reasons:  1)  Maximizes  topic  and  :me   flexibility;  2)  Provides  an  alterna:ve   program  entryway;  3)  Reduces  the   overall  cost  of  the  program  for   students.     5.  Open  access  and  free  tools  are  used   where  possible  in  the  program   6.  The  courses  should  be  taken   sequen:ally  as  listed.    This  45   credit  program  can  be  completed   in  eight  quarters.     7.  The  courses  are  delivered   asynchronously  using  a  project-­‐ based  learning  model  with  weekly   synchronous  interac:ons  between   instructors  and  students.     8.  A  strong  emphasis  is  placed  on   using  only  open  educa:onal   resources  (OERs)  for  course   content.     9.  A  prac:cum  where  students  get   prac:cal,  on-­‐the-­‐job  experience,   applying  what  they  have  learned  in   the  program  with  real  teachers,   learners  and  administrators.     10.  This  is  a  digital  program.  The  use   of  paper  should  be  kept  to  a   minimum.
