The new quarter means another round of teaching and learning conversations at the Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education (DOLCE) faculty forms. We’ll meet in 1310 Surge III this coming Friday (April 4) from 12pm-1pm.
Laramie Taylor, a recipient of the Provost Hybrid Course Award, will join us to share his story with developing a hybrid Communications Studies course. Innovative and collaborative, Taylor is actively including his colleagues in the course content development. Eight to ten of Taylor’s faculty colleagues, each experts in different sub-fields in Communication, will develop materials for one to two units of the course. Taylor himself is creating question-and-answer style videos with the experts.
Additionally, faculty developer Cara Harwood from the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning will lead a discussion on active learning spaces. Harwood was the primary writer on a recent learning spaces report and proposal that advocates for more active learning spaces at UC Davis.
