Hi everyone! I just sent you an email about our scheduling. We’ll have it sorted soon, I promise, but I want to get us started, so this week, we’ll work asynchronously and in two weeks, we will meet on Zoom (we are off next week on Weds and Thurs due to Yom Kippur)
Before we get started, you will need to make sure you’ve signed up for this site (if you haven’t done so already) and that you’ve signed in to our “class” on Perusall.com. I sent instructions via email. Once you have done those things, please do the following:
By Friday, Sept 17:
- Write a blog post (not a comment but a stand-alone post) introducing yourself as a reader, writer, teacher and… a person! Please include some type of visual, if possible. HERE is a video explaining how to write a blog post on Open Lab if you need help. Videos are extra-great, but not required. Please let us know what subjects you would like to cover in this seminar. Feel free to also add any questions or concerns you have about this PD or this semester there.
- Complete THIS EDPUZZLE. Edpuzzle is a program that allows students to watch a video but asks them to answer questions as they go. This video outlines the theory and pedagogy behind the model courses. But please note! It is about 25 minutes long. With questions, this will take you about 40 minutes! IF YOU CLOSE THE WINDOW BEFORE YOU FINISH, YOU WILL LOSE YOUR WORK! I suggest you try to do this in one sitting, if possible.
( HERE is a link to the slideshow (without me talking!) But please do the Edpuzzle!)
By Weds Sept 22 (in preparation for our Zoom meeting):
- Read and annotate the reading “Teaching for Transfer” on our Perusall site. Once you are signed in for the site (using the instructions from our email) it should be fairly self-explanatory. Instructions are on the assignment.
- Read over your peers’ introductions on this site and make a few comments!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions! If you leave them as emails or questions on this site I may not see them for a while.
