Designing in Moodle to Serve Your Syllabus

Date: 10:30am - 11:45am PDT May 21, 2013

You’ve put a lot of thought into the methods by which students will approach and engage with your material in the classroom. This workshop will explore strategies for building a Moodle page that extends your classroom teaching style into the online environment, and that is integrated into the development of your course over the term. We’ll look at ways of using Moodle to stage and prepare for in-class activities, and for reflection and analysis after class. We’ll explore the potential of thematic and project-based modules. Drawing from your and other participants’ syllabi, we’ll think through concrete scenarios of how you might use Moodle to cultivate students’ skills, knowledge, and habits of mind.
