If you are a faculty member, have you ever wondered how to manage a classroom or research project that involves more than one section of students? Extends beyond more than one semester? Involves external “guests” that do not have access to your iLearn course site?
If so, this presentation may help answer your questions. “Constructing Learning Constellations: Extensions of Teaching and Learning Through Creative Course & Project Site Design” This teaching and learning workshop, was offered by the Marist College Center for Teaching Excellence on Wednesday, April 21, 2010,
Dr. Mark A. Van Dyke, Associate Professor, School of Communication and the Arts, and tow of his students, Lindsey Devlin and Robert Capua, presented the workshop, which explained how to creatively combine Sakai's course and project sites (iLearn is Marist's brand of Sakai) into a "collaborative learning constellation" (CLC) that connects large numbers of students in separate sections even over separate semesters in traditional, hybrid, or fully-online courses.
This unique design, created at Marist College, was recognized by Sakai with a 2009 Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award (click here and click here for background).
Through the CLC approach, faculty members and students can engage in large-scale projects that extend over time and require extensive collaboration, storage of materials, communication tools, and interaction with external guests.
