  1. 1. DESIGNING COURSES for SIGNIFICANT LEARNING<br />A Workshop Offered by:<br /><ul><li>Stewart Ross, Ph.D. Dee Fink & Associates</li></ul>University of Minnesota<br />October 7, 2011<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. SPECIFIC GOALS for This Workshop<br /> <br />FOUNDATION KNOWLEDGE: Understand the basic terms and concepts <br />APPLICATION: Be able to use the model of Integrated Course Design (ICD)<br />INTEGRATION: Identify the relationship between what you are doing now as a teacher and the ideas of ICD <br />
  4. 4. SPECIFIC GOALS for This Workshop(cont.)<br />HUMAN DIMENSION:<br /><ul><li>SELF: Be more confident that you can do this
  5. 5. OTHERS: Work with others to create more powerful designs</li></ul>CARING: Identify the value of course design in teaching<br />LEARNING HOW TO LEARN: Know what else you want to learn about course design – and how to learn that.<br />
  6. 6. Agenda for Workshop<br />Big Picture of Teaching—Place of Course Design<br />Readiness Assessment Test<br />Integrated Course Design:<br /> -Situational Factors<br /> -Learning Goals<br /> -Feedback & Assessment<br /> -Teaching/Learning Activities<br /> -Making your course integrated<br />Does it work?<br />

  112. 112. Taxonomy of Significant Learning<br />

  114. 114. Writing Significant Learning Goals for Your Course<br />For one of your own courses:<br />Write learning goals for 3 categories in the Taxonomy of Significant Learning.<br />Preface: “By the end of the course, my hope is that students will be able to….”<br />Suggestions:<br /><ul><li>Pay close attention to your VERBS

  174. 174. Does It Make a Difference?<br /><ul><li>Bill Weeks, University of Missouri at Rolla
  175. 175. Course: Coding in Computer Science
  176. 176. Small class (18 students), traditional time structure (M-W-F)
  177. 177. Initially: Lecture + homework
  178. 178. Results: Students overwhelmed by complexity – frustration – apathy – low course evaluations</li></li></ul><li>Changes Made:<br />1. Completely re-wrote his learning goals: (examples)<br /><ul><li>For a given communication channel, students will be able to compute the maximum rate of reliable transmission
  179. 179. Students will learn how to work effectively in a group setting.
  180. 180. Students will be able to direct their own learning in relation to understanding, designing, and evaluating new codes.</li></ul>2. New teaching strategy: Used TBL<br />3. Used reflective writing: Learning portfolios<br />4. Oral presentations<br />5. Had students re-submit their homework<br />
  181. 181. RESULTS:<br /><ul><li>Students did the readings, and did as well as before on exams of Foundational Knowledge.
  182. 182. TEACHER: “…drastic improvement in student morale…They worked harder – and reported enjoying it more.”
  183. 183. STUDENTS:
  184. 184. …an interesting learning experience I will never forget…provided me with knowledge to carry out independent study.
  185. 185. I enjoyed this course to the fullest…course was entertaining and at the same time enlightening.</li></li></ul><li>TEACHER’S REACTION:<br /><ul><li>“Teaching such an excited group of students was an unforgettable experience.
  186. 186. It made my job seem worthwhile and very fulfilling.
  187. 187. I will be feeding off that student excitement for years.”</li></li></ul><li>RESOURCES FOR FURTHER LEARNING:<br /><ul><li> Print Resources
