In these sessions we explore a range of ways to support students in sharing their experiences, reflections and discussions outside of class in a more open manner – through digital communication platforms and tools. As part of this series, you will redesign one course activity or assessment strategy for implementation in a course in Fall 2016.
Throughout the three part series we will engage in a simulation using a shared and collaborative WordPress blog thereby modeling approaches to implementing open reflective writing. Various models of using WordPress in education will be explored including individual student reflective writing sites, collaborative community course sites, and aggregated sites.
By the end of these sessions participants will:
-experience taking part in a collaborative reflective writing community
-plan a learning activity which makes use of this technique
-share their experiences implementing within their discipline
