Upcoming Fall 2021 support sessions for faculty.
A new academic year is almost upon us and while we’ve had Brightspace for more than a year now, you still might not have a semester prep routine down that feels natural…
Has your Fall course run on Brightspace yet? There’s some work that has to be done to make a course that came from Blackboard function well in Brightspace. CTEL can help get your former-Blackboard course fixed up for the Fall 2021 term!
In Part 2 of our blog series on learning objectives, we embrace the hard truths we learned during our previous efforts and discover how drastically a change to learning objectives can ripple through the rest of a course, requiring us to change more than just the objectives. The upside is students receive a truly challenging and engaging learning experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Learning objectives are the foundation of a course. They describe things your students will be able to do once they complete your course, and they act as a design tool in the process of developing a course to keep you focused on important content. Flaws in them will be felt by you and your students throughout your course. It can also be daunting to create or rewrite them for a course that you already teach because, if done properly, they will reveal uncomfortable truths about it.
