End of session reflections

Hi everyone,

Before the W2016 term vanishes in the rear view mirror, please take a minute to review the second half of the LC course development process, and respond to the questions below.  Your final thoughts on these points will help Rob and Chris and me to evaluate our efforts so far.

At the end of the session, are you satisfied with the progress you’ve made in the development of your paired courses?  What are your concerns ?

Do you have any additional thoughts at this point on collaborating with a faculty colleague on course design?

Did you continue to find the group exchanges to be supportive & productive?  Is there anything we should be doing to add to the process or topics of these meetings, as we think about the next group of LC faculty?

Any final thoughts on specific activities, resources and tools from the second half of the session?

 

Mid-term W2016: Your Thoughts on Progress and Process

At our last meeting before the break, I promised you an opportunity to take stock of your work and make some observations on process thus far.  As you know, Rob and Chris and I are interested in documenting and evaluating this session’s workflow, materials, resources, and collaborative processes, so your comments at this point will give us a lot to go on as we work to formalize an LC course development framework.

So, please grab a coffee and spend a few minutes with the following questions.   We’ll revisit them again at the end of the term, so you are welcome to be tentative at this point – but the more specific you are now, the more Rob and Chris and I have to go on as we adapt and design for the second half of the session.

Are you satisfied with the progress you are making in the development of your paired course?  What gives you confidence at this point, and what are your concerns moving forward?

How would you describe the experience so far of collaborating closely with a faculty colleague on course design for a paired course?

How would you characterize the processes and outcomes of  our group meetings so far?  Have these exchanges between teachers been supportive & productive?

Have the specific activities, resources and tools introduced been helpful in defining objectives and moving toward decisions about curriculum and pedagogy?

Any other thoughts, on these or other issues?
