In all of my teaching, I work to prepare students to be capable, confident, and curious in their professional and personal lives. My syllabi are designed to meet course learning outcomes. My leveraging open and industry-standard tools alike helps students discover workflows that they can adapt for other tools that might be required later in the workplace. I have assignments that build their public speaking ability and others that are collaborative in nature. I encourage life-long learning and dynamic approaches to work so that they will be able to adapt to changing workplace realities in the future to maintain their success long after leaving City Tech.
My students have demonstrated a commitment to their learning by consistently earning high marks, surprising me with their contributions to discussions, and creating high-quality deliverables on major project assignments.
I gauge student learning on low-stakes assignments, such as weekly summary essay writing, and high-stakes assignments, such as exams, individual research projects, and collaborative projects.
In many of my OpenLab Course Sites (see the Syllabi and Assignments page), examples of student work are contained within each as multimodal blog posts and written comments made to blog posts.
In these recent classes, I created a new set of Categories to easily sort and display student work:
