  • Encourage Interaction between you and your students

  • Good learning is not competitive or isolated.
  • Sharing ideas and responding to others improves thinking and deepens understanding
  • Incorporate active learning techniques
  • Students must talk about what they are learning, and write effectively about it as well.
  • What the students are learning must be applied to their daily lives
  • Provide prompt feedback
  • Students need help in assessing their existing knowledge and competence.
  • Students need frequent opportunities to perform and to receive feedback on their performance
  • Reflection is key.
  • Feedback should be provided promptly, so students can adapt/improve before the next assignment, discussion, or assessment.
  • Emphasize time on task.
  • Time + energy = learning
  • Using time well is critical for students and professionals alike
  • Allocating realistic amounts of time means effective teaching for faculty and efficient learning for students.
  • Communicate high expectations.
  • High expectations are important for everyone: the poorly prepared; those unwilling to exert themselves; and the bright and well-motivated
  • Expecting students to perform well becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Respect Diversity and Individual Talents, Experience, and Learning Styles
  • Many roads lead to learning
  • Different students bring different talents and styles to college
  • Students need opportunities to show their talents and learn in ways that work for them
  • Then, they can be pushed to learn in new ways that do not come easily.

This specific assignment relates to the concept of "Time on Task." This assignment required us to engage in an activity while also learning about the different principles of online learning. We also are making the most of our time by exploring this new website, figuring out what it does and how to use it, while also incorporating this week's readings.
