Contemplative Course Design

Rating
0.0 stars

This series of eight brief videos by Karolyn Kinane, Associate Director of Pedagogy and Faculty Engagement at the Contemplative Sciences Center at the University of Virginia, offers college instructors some basic vocabulary and skills to start engaging in teaching as a contemplative practice. The series introduces contemplative pedagogy with special attention to its role in backward design, offering specific examples from online learning environments in higher education. The videos demonstrate the relationship between course design best practices such as alignment and transparency and contemplative values such as presence, awareness, and compassion. Viewers can engage in exercises to identify the beliefs, habits, and intentions that undergird instructors’ teaching philosophies and practices. Viewers are encouraged to develop strategies to design learning experiences in line with one’s most pressing goals for student-learning.

The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) provides a curriculum alignment system that helps teachers deliver standards-driven assignments in which students write in response to reading in discipline-specific ways supported by backwards-designed instruction.

LDC tools and learning experiences help teachers and schools meet the challenges of: (1) increasing the rigor of assignments, lessons, and units by becoming truly standards-driven, (2) increasing teachers' knowledge and expertise around instructional planning, and (3) radically changing the expectations schools and teachers have for their students' ability to read and write with depth and breadth—in other words, to be truly college and career ready.

The LDC CoreTools platform includes: (1) a free Curriculum Library that includes nationally-validated tasks and instructional plans that can be modified to meet any teacher's needs; (2) template-driven task and instructional plan editing tools that can be used collaboratively; (3) student-work rubrics and a curriculum-alignment rubric; (4) free professional learning experiences; (5) premium professional learning experiences, resources, and analytics.

Undergraduate - Introductory Chemistry Flipped Classroom Modules
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This learning activity is designed to be used in a large introductory chemistry course, as part of a larger module of learning activities that includes prior viewing of an interactive instructional video. Instructional videos are to be viewed before class meetings. During class time, students work in small groups and discuss the presented information and question prompts, and will build upon the concepts discussed in that video in order to develop a new, extended concept.Students should be tasked with working together to complete the prompts in each section of the activity by a set time limit. After each section is completed, the entire class can share their answers via a personal response system, and the instructor can review and explain the correct responses, using the accompanying slide deck, which translates the problems into multiple-choice prompts.Instructional resources include 1) interactive instructional videos (these can be embedded directly into the learning management system) 2) the learning activity (.docx and .pdf) 3) the learning objects (.docx and .pdf) and 4) the slide deck (.pptx). - Chemical Bonding- Resonance - Intermolecular Forces- Collision Theory- Equilibrium- Nucleophiles and Electrophiles
