We spoke with Bruce about some of the design features and challenges involved in the ComPADRE project. He asked us what we might consider if we had to start from scratch, and this led to a great conversation. This week (2/27) he’ll be back to walk us through using ComPADRE.
Melissa shared how she has changed two courses at Carleton College to address learning objectives around being a citizen scientist. We discussed logistical issues and we brainstormed ways that you could motivate this work.
This week (2/20/13) we’ll be talking with Bruce Mason about Compadre.
We spoke with Todd about how he has instituted his Learning Objectives-Bases Assessment (LOBA) approach, and we broadened the conversation to larger Standards-Based Grading issues.
This week (2/13 9:30pm ET) we’re going to talk with Melissa Eblen-Zayas from Carleton College about “Encouraging physics students to be thoughtful citizen scientists.”
We talked with John Burk and others about different ways to manage student capstones. We discussed whether there’s a distinctions between capstones and projects. We also discussed scheduling time for students to present in the Global Physics Department. If you have students doing a project where they would benefit from presenting to us, feel free to contact Andy (firstname.lastname@example.org or @arundquist).
This week (2/6) we’ll be talking with Todd Zimmerman about Learning Outcomes Based Assessment (LOBA).
