During this workshop, instructors learn how to use WordPress blogs to organize activities designed to help students think about course material and synthesize their understanding through reflection, feedback, collaboration and curation. Professors are encouraged to come to the workshop with their course learning objectives. Through discussion and examples, a learning designer helps attendees get started with an active learning design. Approaches for formative and summative assessment are also covered.
This is part of our series of workshops on Course Management and Collaboration Tools. In these workshops, CTL learning designers help instructors learn to manage course websites, use tools for collaboration, improve presentations, produce video lectures, and create innovative, multimedia-based assignments.
