DiscussionScreenshot of Homepage What information does your homepage provide? Discuss it in this box. (If you use the ANGEL master template, you may simply indicate this below.) Provide a screenshot of your course homepage in the box to the right. I use the master template provided by SCTC. I also use the Custom Nugget for relevant supporting material.
DiscussionSample I use a Start Here folder to orient students to the course. In it I include course information, the syllabus, a syllabus quiz, an opening lecture, study guides, biographical information, work ethics, and written assignments for the semester.
DiscussionSample I use modules. Each unit covers 2 chapters. Inside each unit I have 2 folder: this weeks assignments (including a schedule, a quiz, a study guide, and other relevant information) and lectures (including my power points and supplemental material).
DiscussionSample I use discussion boards to encourage conversation about course content. I require a blog assignment wherein students submit critiques on art, architecture, and literature. Students have to respond to at least one other students blog during the semester, which encourages conversation on these topics to continue.
DiscussionSample I respond to student s daily. I keep office hours on campus. I meet with students on the phone or in person. I occasionally hold live chats. I contribute in forums.
DiscussionSample I give 8 content quizzes and one syllabus quiz. I assign three blog posts (~500 words each). I offer an optional journal assignments and exercises relevant to the various units in the book. I use discussion boards.
DiscussionSample Students critique art, music, literature, and architecture in writing assignments in this course. They respond to one another after sharing their critiques. I make online videos available (via links on my homepage) on a wide range of topics pertaining to the material in the chapters.
Please add additional slides as necessary in order to complete this reflection. Goals (What would you like to improve in this course in the future?) I would like to record my lectures and insert them into my PowerPoint lectures so students can hear the anecdotes and asides that accompany the slides. I am always seeking better web-based material to provide them as supplementary material. I am also exploring web-supported tools available through the publisher. Training (How can we help you with your course design?) I need to explore recording options. Teaching Philosophy (What motivates you to teach the way that you teach?) I conduct my classroom based on a student-centered model. While I am the content expert, I am also a facilitator. I believe that students and teachers can (and should) learn from one another. The learning environment should be flexible and supportive in order to encourage this type of exchange of ideas.
