Our next stop on this educational journey is a course on instructional strategies. I will be looking at the value of various instructional strategies from Elizabeth Barkley's Student Engagement Techniques.
I will continue to update this blog and discuss the benefits and limitations of using blogs and forums as forms of instruction and assessment. I will analyze my own blog and highlight the findings of a forum I will facilitate over the next few months on creative thinking.
The last component of this course will be a digital instructional strategies project. Possible strategies, at first glance of the textbook, I am considering for this project are:
- Team Jeopardy (p. 174)
- Analytic Teams (p. 207)
- Team Concept Maps (p. 218) and Class Books (p. 243)
- Learning Log (p. 324)
- Resource Scavenger Hunt (p. 345)
