Education is changing because the world is changing. This class examines how we can approach a future that is exciting but uncertain with "innovativeness", or the ability to respond creatively to the unexpected. Using relevant research and practical experiences, we explore principles of self-awareness and learn practical strategies to become agents of change.
Specific instructional strategies developed in this course include designing instruction through an understanding of what motivates learners. These practical applications of motivational design will inform strategies that best meet learners’ needs.
Further, we will explore both TPACK and SAMR as models to support instructional shifts that leverage emergent technology. Templates and organizational charts will be employed to plan for change.
Participants will complete:
- 8 Reflections (Waypoints) each reflection is a 500 word or more response.
