  7. History 400W: Create a Wikipedia Entry on Witchcraft • Little to no representation of existing scholarly debate • Unbalanced coverage (focused on Britain, with little attention to other examples elsewhere) • Very limited references • No examples • Few good external links Slide by Beth Pollard

  8. Faculty Fellows’ Experiences Digital-Age Literacy Inventive Thinking Adaptability, Managing Complexity and Self-Direction Basic, Scientific, Economic and Technological Literacies 30,453 Students “Thank you, it was a great experience. I have made some adjustments based on feedback I received last semester and am looking forward to implementing them this semester.” “I recommend the fellowship because it is a great opportunity to reconsider teaching and learning in the company of other educators and resource people. Great opportunity.” Curiosity, Creativity and Risk Taking Visual and Information Literacies Multicultural Literacy and Global Awareness Higher-Order Thinking and Sound Reasoning Academic Achievement Academic Achievement 21st Century Learning “I was very pleased with the entire process. I especially liked the open houses. THANKS!!!!” “Very happy to have had the opportunity and support to make it happen. Thanks.” Effective Communication High Productivity Teaming, Collaboration and Interpersonal Skills Prioritizing, Planning and Managing for Results Personal, Social and Civic Responsibility Effective Use of Real-World Tools Interactive Communication Ability to Produce Relevant, High-Quality Products Academic Achievement

  9. Students’ Experiences Digital-Age Literacy Inventive Thinking Adaptability, Managing Complexity and Self-Direction Basic, Scientific, Economic and Technological Literacies 30,453 Students “This project helped me better understand how to break the articles down and organize the material to better understand it“ “The blogging increased my participation in the class and my interaction with the other students. I think we should’ve used the blogs a lot more during the semester.” Curiosity, Creativity and Risk Taking Visual and Information Literacies Multicultural Literacy and Global Awareness Higher-Order Thinking and Sound Reasoning Academic Achievement Academic Achievement 21st Century Learning “The thing I liked best about Wikipedia assignment was that I got to have my scholarship on a subject on the internet for everyone to learn from. Since it was written by me I knew that it would be as objective as possible since this is what historians try to do.” “It makes students think about a similar idea in several ways (researching characters, understanding the ideas and thoughts of those people when putting those thoughts together in the dialogue, and finally acting out their characters creates a personal understanding of those people).” Effective Communication High Productivity Teaming, Collaboration and Interpersonal Skills Prioritizing, Planning and Managing for Results Personal, Social and Civic Responsibility Effective Use of Real-World Tools Interactive Communication Ability to Produce Relevant, High-Quality Products Academic Achievement

  10. Current and Future Directions • The 2007/2008 faculty cohort will work for 1-3 semesters to re-design their high enrollment courses to • Utilize and maximize the NCREL 21st century skills student learning outcome approach • Incorporate a developmental iterative model to design a blended teaching approach (combining face to face and online instruction emphasizing computer based technologies) • Create small faculty learning communities to facilitate peer support, learning from common experience that leads to improved learning outcomes.

  11. Current and Future Directions • Follow a strategic plan that focuses on faculty development and a process that can be supported and sustained through current and developing institutional support infrastructures. • Maintain close working relationships with our partners, to take advantage of several CSU system-wide initiatives as well as other funding venues. • With funding from the CSU Transforming Course Design Initiative we are working with our partners to create a formative evaluation framework to facilitate development of blended and hybrid courses. • Continue to evaluate/assess/monitor progress of former and current pICT fellows • Seek other funding sources and continue to submit and present aspects of our projects at appropriate academic conference and journal venues

  12. Institutional Impacts: 2005-2009 • 55 faculty fellows have participated in pICT faculty development. • At least 82 “high impact” courses will be modified. • 25 disciplines or majors are represented. • By the end of 2009, over 45,000 “student exposures” to 21st century skill sets will have occurred.

  13. Beyond Institutional Impacts • SDSU’s PICT program has provided a model of course re-design for the CSU system and a new CSU initiative oncourse re-design. • The CSU Chancellor’s Office has retained the PICT Assistant Director as a consultant for a system-wide “Transforming Course Design Initiative.” • Dr. Mark Laumakis, a first cohort PICT fellow,has received national attention for his extensive course re-design of Psychology 101. • Presentations of PICT results include both national and international professional venues.
