SoTL #2 – Engage with SoTL Response

Added by Sidney, response for SoTL #2 – Engage with SoTL Activity

This is a rehash of my post on negotiated grading, but perhaps I’ll get into more of the idea behind it and less focused on the technical aspects of how it works in the class. I think there is an issue with feedback. I had papers that I put a huge amount of work into,… Read more »

SoTL #1 – Three Keys of SoTL Response

Added by Sidney, response for SoTL #1 – Three Keys of SoTL Activity

I can imagine that you read the title, and are wondering, as I was, what exactly a SoTL is. Well, it seems you have come to the right place, as SoTL stands for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.  I think this is a great activity because while I know alot about the subjects I teach, I… Read more »

Lab Report Response

Added by Sidney, response for Lab Report Activity

For this module, I experimented with a number of new technologies. I created an animated GIF without using photoshop (which was fun and easy, I will probably use these for my course material development in the future) and I also played around with http://www.googlelittrips.org/ which seems like a really neat idea. As a huge fan of… Read more »

What is a variable? Response

Added by Sidney, response for Show a Process as an Animated GIF Activity

For Show a Process as an Animated GIF, I decided to make my animated GIF around the idea of a variable. I used the youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvrszgiexg0 to get ideas, and see how they explain it.

Extend from my Office Response

Added by Sidney, response for Do it Daily Activity

Sitting in my office, looking at my clutter, I am trying to think what extend means to me. Without getting too philosophical, I think it’s the extension that happens outside of the classroom and carries on into the real world. Even though I try to model projects on real world problems using actual data, there… Read more »

Mapping your Personal Learning Network (PLN) Response

Added by Sidney, response for Mapping your PLN Activity

I thought this was a very interesting activity because it parallels something we recently did in MKT1005. In that example, students researched the hashtag #UnitedBreaksGuitars and wrote an essay on what the tweets around the subject, actors, or other factors meant. This is an important point as meaning, or why things are grouped as they… Read more »

Oh CRAAP Response

Added by Sidney, response for Holy CRAAP Activity

This post is going to deal with CRAAP, currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose. Specifically we are going to deal with an issue around open source tools in class. In my program, we sometimes want to make students aware of a particular piece of software, but not each an entire course about it. When looking at… Read more »

Curation Creation Response

Added by Sidney, response for Curation Creation Activity

For this post I am linking to my padlet of OER resources I collected around social research and ethics https://padlet.com/sidney_shapiro1/ypl9ioylc0k1 I highlighted OER resources that I would use in various courses and started to build a list of how they connect together by topic and subject (to reflect the various courses and subjects in the program).
