  • I generally assign frameworks on a weekly basis, to be completed with course reading outside of class. I collect them weekly, when assigned reading is due, which helps students stay accountable to the reading and on track with our course calendar.

Final Report of the Aligning and Building Curriculum Knowledge Exchange Network Project - 0 views

  • PSE educators say they lack time to focus on learning more about new teaching practices and don’t know where to find this critical information. Collaborative, one-stop online resources can be extremely valuable, allowing  PSE teachers to move beyond simply reading the material to  discussing it with colleagues and using it to develop curriculum.

University of Guelph Provost's White Paper | Office of the Provost | University of Guelph - 0 views

  • This white paper is an examination of that mission, and an inquiry into what the Guelph undergraduate learning experience is and could be. It is not a critique of program content—that is the realm of departmental policy, or a program or curricular review. It is instead a high-level attempt to re-imagine how the University structures and manifests that learning experience. More than anything else it is a vision-level statement of what we might need to do, as an institution, to maintain the leadership position in undergraduate education and innovation that we have enjoyed in the recent past.

How Do You Talk About Aboriginal Issues in the Classroom? - 0 views

  •  
    What I Learned in Class Today: Aboriginal Issues in the Classroom is a research project designed to make these situations visible and to find ways to have more professional and productive classroom discussions. Developed in the First Nations Studies Program at the University of British Columbia, this project asks students, instructors, and administrators at UBC, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, to share in videotaped interviews their most memorable classroom experiences where the discussion of Aboriginal issues became difficult, and to share their reflections on the dynamics underpinning these situations. Their interviews form the basis for resource materials that have been produced to improve the classroom discussion of politically and culturally sensitive issues. We welcome the use of these materials for programming and for the development of similar initiatives at other institutions; we only ask that this project and its materials be cited appropriately where used. Please see "license information" for further information.
