NEW ONLINE TEACHING RESOURCES RELATED TO EVIDENCE-GATHERING, SENSE-MAKING, AND ARGUMENTATION

Shared teaching resources provide a common framework and vocabulary for addressing E&A student learning outcomes; by developing and embedding similarly-structured teaching modules into classes, students will be able to compare and contrast the specific attributes of argumentation among disciplines and ways of knowing.  In addition, the availability of online teaching modules offers faculty the opportunity to flip the classroom, by requiring students to take control of their own learning outside of class time. Finally, shared resources will contribute to alignment of the teaching of argumentation skills from the first year through graduation.

Expanding the inventory of teaching resources available for use by faculty across the university is a key E&A priority.  Specific initiatives are anticipated to include:

  • Working with faculty across the university (including library faculty) in developing online teaching modules that address each E&A student learning outcome at the introductory, developing, and mastery level;
  • Collaborating with faculty and programs to develop discipline-specific applications of argumentation principles and skills;
  • Working with library faculty to utilize the Blackboard Learning Management System to create discussion boards, tutorials, videos, and other distributed resources; and
  • Collaborating with instructional technology specialists to develop effective web-based teaching modules that can be embedded within individual courses.
