Author(s): Allen Partridge
Date Friday, March 18 16:00
Location: Central Auditorium
Abstract It has been about 150 years since the documents we now know as course syllabi were first used in academia. The documents are rooted in the traditions of the information delivery and management models of education.Session attendees will see examples of next generation syllabi. The re-imagined course guides leverage 21st Century technologies and cognitive theory to provide a course communication and planning center. These documents blend the principles of Informatics, Experience Design, Cognitive Theories of Multimedia eLearning and Constructionist concepts to create living interactive resources which initiate the 'conversation' with students in a clear, approachable manner.
