I’m looking forward to getting started on the Technology Supported Learning & Retention – 2011 workshop, with the on-campus kick-off next Friday Feb 4 at 10-12am.

We will be looking at the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education and using these as the workshop outline. In 1987 Chickering & Gamson published the now famous Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education. These principles are based on the perspective that the goal of a proper undergraduate education should be active, cooperative, and challenging.

1. encourage student-faculty contact
2. encourage cooperation among students
3. encourage active/engaged learning
4. give prompt feedback
5. emphasize time on task
6. communicate high expectations
7. respect diverse talents and ways of learning

In preparation, please spend some time thinking about these ideas and how you include them in your teaching now. We will be building on your current practice and expanding your technology toolkit for supporting student learning.
