 Pedagogical Foundations from Scott Heinerich

  • Here is the ppt from our initial session.  When looking at the Ipadagogy Wheel attempt to match your course topic objectives (i.e. action verbs- demonstrate, remember, evaluate etc.) to the action verbs in the wheel to see what tools you may consider utilizing.
  • Also Constance shared another visual that discusses Bloom’s taxonomy and different types of tools instructors can use to “assess” levels of learning within their assignments: Tools for Engaging.  (Thanks Constance!) .
  • If you have not begun your course transformation yet consider using Getting Started Course Template to help you organize what you are going to do during the online sessions.  It will be much easier for you to execute if you have planned it out.  As we discussed this can be overwhelming so the mantra should be “Start with One.”
  • Finally, see this article from Magna Publications on Evaluating Online Discussions. It aligns with our discussion.
