Course Design Example using Student Centered Pedagogy – CHIPS 307
This presentation will explore and demonstrate how following the student-centered pedagogy of my discipline (Rhetoric and Composition) has helped my course design maintain high quality over the years. For instance, knowing that students who take my classes have a wide-variety of knowledge and skills (or lack thereof) about navigating course spaces, my courses are designed so that anyone (from the extremely proficient to completely novice users) can easily access the materials they need and/or easily access help to do so. The course demonstrated is a first-year writing course within the Blackboard Learn LMS.
