    A few years ago I was taking a tour of a dome shaped house, and the architect explained to me that domes are an optical illusion. Whenever someone enters a room, their eyes inadvertently glance up at the corners of the room to give them the contextual dimensions of the space they're in.

A curriculum built on the fundamental questions of our disciplines - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    As we make plans for how we will engage our students in their learning the decisions we make become fundamental to how they will grow to understand the purposes of learning. How our learners approach the curriculum and the disciplines is fundamental to the outcomes we may achieve for them.

A Syllabus Tip: Embed Big Questions | Faculty Focus - 5 views

  • go back to and take a closer look at your learning outcomes for the course. As you read through the outcomes, write a discussion question related to each outcome
  • After you have written at least one discussion question for each of your learning outcomes, think about which sections of your syllabus relate to each of the outcomes
  • The goal here is to use “chunking” to divide your syllabus into areas for discussion based on your learning outcomes. Continue embedding discussion questions throughout the whole syllabus. Keep the text and font consistent with your overall syllabus. You may not want your discussion questions to stand out too much. Your goal is to encourage students to read each section and find the discussion question themselves.

    Tips for embedding discussion into a syllabus to make it more than a statement of expectiations and outcomes.
    This is a great strategy. I always write my learning outcomes (or understanding goals) in question forms. These can be used in so many the beginning of the course students can discuss or individually write responses to these questions and they can be reviewed at the end of the course. If the course material is very new, they are a great guide to be coming back to periodically throughout the course. In a course that lasts more than one semester, we always use the questions at the beginning of the second semester as a means of reviewing the first. Thanks for sharing this Debi.
