We had an excellent response to our presentations at the conference on Excellence in Teaching and Learning, and the Innovate Conference, with many coming to us afterwards to discuss. We are forming a team to run the next online global learning environment for this project (soon-to-be-program, I hope).
One person wrote to ask for the details of our e-book assignment. So I pasted the assignment below, including the assigned roles, the process students followed, and our criteria for quality. Please also see our assessment rubric as part of the “Global Media Project” Buckeye Badge.
As you may know from previous blog posts, we assigned an e-book that the students co-authored as their final project.
- annotated bibliography
- images with descriptive captions, TASLs
- thesis generator
- Proper attribution for images, ideas and any other creation.
- Detailed descriptions of images, why they are significant to the research topic.
- Team-work – did everyone complete tasks for their role in a timely fashion? Did the group help when someone was struggling with some aspect of the project? Did each person ask for what they needed to get their work done, but not do more than what is required for their role?
