7th Jun 2021

Summer is almost here (at least it was briefly last week), and I hope you are able to get some beach time in a socially distanced way, kinda like the guy in the header pic who looks white, but is going to be real red by the end of the day...

June 7 - 13

Things to do this week...

Read the following posts, in order: Interaction, Our Need to Interact (including the required reading in Teaching in a Digital Age ), Assessing Interaction.
Complete this week's prompt on Interaction and publish your fourth required post on your blog.
Begin or continue working on your interactive learning resource with your learning pod.

Your interactive learning resource DRAFT is due Sunday, June 13. The draft should be substantially completed by then so that another learning pod can provide a peer review.

Good morning (or afternoon or whatever...) everyone! I trust you all had a good weekend and are ready for another week! My weekend was pretty busy, but I'm pleased to report that my conferencing last week was a success, even though there was So. Much. Zoom. I'll be pleased when we can get back to conferencing IRL. Kinda like this ad you may have seen...(I do like Extra gum, but don't stand to benefit from sharing this...)

But, enough of that...we've still got work to do. We are well into the back half of EDCI335 and the remainder of the course will likely go very quickly. We have 2 more units where new content will be introduced and discussed followed by a week for you all to focus on your interactive learning resource assignments, including a peer review activity.

So far, you should have completed the following...

You should know that I mean it when I say that I am grateful for your work in this course. Your blueprints were very well done and it was a pleasure speaking with many of you over the last week about your thoughts on the assignment and to meet many of you for the first time. As I mentioned to each of you, if you have any questions of concerns about the course, or if you are having particular challenges (whether COVID-19 related or not), please let me know. There are many ways we can work together to ensure your success in the course.

This week, we are going to think about interaction and how to design for it in your interactive learning resource. Obviously, interactivity should be front-and-centre in a project called 'interactive learning resource'!

Your list of tasks for the week is at the top of this page and also on the Schedule page on the course site.

As always, please let me know if you have questions!
