Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"

yes
Bridget Trogden
42:36
Yes! Innovative thinkers!
Christopher Cox

The library has been working with faculty to have students create open textbook chapters or lessons for use in future classes.
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
56:08
I love this example! IT challenges assumptions. Reminds me of Med School including ethics and literature courses to encourage empathy.
Mariah Magagnotti
57:00
Question for later - In the writing examples (Business class in an English major, etc.), is there a recommended way to grade these responses well and consistently? My STEM students love to see rubrics and specific points...
Jon Harcum
58:04
­­­­­^ and how would you allow for students to respond in different media (e.g., video, ppt)
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:01:11
Having past examples is really helpful to students. Advice for when the assignment is new? So you have not just a rubric but an example of high expectations?
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:05:15
Have you come across student consultants who help faculty "test" these types of assignments?
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:09:39
Yes Paul! unhappiness doesn't equal learning!
Jon Harcum
01:14:27
LOL
Christine Minor (she/her/hers)
01:14:35
Jon, you are so wicked!! :-)
Mariah Magagnotti
01:16:05
I had my students submit a project plan via Canvas that had to be approved before they were supposed to start.
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:16:16
It makes grading SO much more fun, yes!
Christine Minor (she/her/hers)
01:16:18
That raises a question many of us deal with. How to do these types of things with high enrollment courses. I can be really creative with 40 students. When I get 250 with no TA, I’m really limited.
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:16:29
Mariah, great idea!
Bridget Trogden
01:16:41
(Chris - we'll ask that live!)
Christine Minor (she/her/hers)
01:16:47
Ok
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:16:56
could they also do a midpoint check, get feedback, perhaps in peer groups?
Mariah Magagnotti
01:16:56
In my 100+ student (which is not 250 w/no TA, for sure!), I team them up
Christopher Cox
01:17:50
Have to go. This was very useful. Thanks so much!
Neil Burton
01:19:22
Those “Wicked” competencies are highly valued by those providing opportunities to our students following graduation, so we’re very glad when competency development is encouraged in the classroom!
Pam Mack
01:20:57
Group projects help in the large classes (with an assignment to report on slackers and who did the most work)
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:21:55
Neil, can you post the link to your competencies? I think these are really useful for faculty!
Christine Minor (she/her/hers)
01:21:55
We do a lot of “wicked” things in a formative nature. But are VERY limited in a summative nature because of class sizes.
Neil Burton
01:23:46
Happy to do so, Taimi - thanks for the invitation! :-)

Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:24:00
very carefully? lol
Bridget Trogden
01:24:05
You beat me to it. Thanks, Neil!
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:25:44
We need more opportunities for faculty to share assignments and work together! (how do we do this when everyone is feeling wiped out from the pandemic year?)
Mariah Magagnotti
01:26:28
Thank you so much! Gotta run!
Hassan Raza
01:27:03
Thank you so much. Have to get to the next meeting.

Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:29:14
Thanks Abby! I also think of Tom Tobin, a UDL specialist, who advocates for Plus One. Giving students two choices for doing an assignment
Bridget Trogden
01:31:29
Or they could make a 1 minute overview of their topic in Flipgrid and other students leave comments?

I’m going to half to run, Thanks!
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:34:44
Our librarians also are interested in open pedagogy!
Yang Wu

Here is an examples of a book that the Libraries has helped faculty to create: https://btugman.pressbooks.com/
Gerald Lehmacher
01:38:04
Thanks a lot. Was really helpful for creating/thinking about challenging questions for Wicked Climate Change course…
Cora Allard-Keese
01:39:14
I agree Paul - our CI projects (team-based research and engagement courses) definitely incorporate Wicked Problems
Taimi Olsen (she) "tī mē"
01:42:49
That's so true
Bridget Trogden

Neil Burton
