FAS Ed Tech assisted CAS Advising in developing interactive modules for an online course of study to help students on academic probation improve academic performance. Students complete modules prior to meetings with advisors, building skills and knowledge in four key areas: goals and goal setting, time management, learning strategies, and aligning interests, careers and majors.
FAS Ed Tech partnered with Liberal Studies Life Science professors Lori Nicholas and Kevin Bonney to develop interactive content modules for use in both their face-to-face and online courses (LS launched a pilot online course in Life Science for the Summer 2017 semester). Each module presents course content through accessible, interactive multimedia presentations that also test students on their knowledge and understanding of the material.
Professor Richard Cole (Courant-Computer Science) developed instructional videos for his CSCI UA-0310 Basic Algorithms class, which introduces future computer scientists to the process of designing efficient and adaptable algorithms.
Professor Daniel Turner (Chemistry) conceived of a simulation that would provide his students of Quantum Mechanics with opportunities to visualize subatomic objects and their behavior in an interactive environment.
Professor Andre Adler (Physics) uses various online interactive platforms to engage his 350+ General Physics classes. Students engage in active problem solving before, during and after lecture.
Professor Allen Mincer (Physics) flipped CORE-Quarks to Cosmos, a large lecture course for non-science majors. He developed original content to replace the use of two required textbooks and promoted active learning activities in class.
