Updating the Hippocratic Oath (An Introductory Bioethics Assignment Using Hypothes.is)

Updating the Hippocratic Oath (An Introductory Bioethics Assignment Using Hypothes.is)
California State University, Channel Islands
Ronald Berkowsky, Instructor from California State University Channel Islands, created a low-stakes introductory assignment to be implemented in a bioethics course using the Hypothes.is platform. In it, students collaboratively annotate the Hippocratic Oath (i.e., one of the oldest known medical code of ethics) and suggest edits to make the Oath more reflective of modern perspectives and values. This assignment helps to underscore how ethical principles and behaviors in health and medicine have changed over time.

Bilingual Translations in Canvas

Bilingual Translations in Canvas
California State University, Channel Islands
Kristin Jordan, Instructor from California State University Channel Islands, implemented bilingual translations in Canvas for a Sociology of Education course where information on the Canvas home page, in the welcome/start here module, and major headings/buttons are presented in both English and Spanish. This initiative ensures that information displayed on the Canvas home page, within the welcome/start here module, and major headings/buttons is accessible in both English and Spanish. By providing simultaneous translations, students gain direct exposure to essential concepts and research covered in the course, such as community cultural wealth, linguistic capital, and bilingual education. Additionally, this approach fosters a more inclusive environment, both linguistically and culturally, within our class. Importantly, the adaptability of these bilingual translations makes them applicable to various courses, regardless of content alignment.

California State University, Channel Islands
Elizabeth A. Sowers, an Associate Professor at CSU Channel Islands, created an interactive PlayPosit video for her SOC 100 class to help students achieve a better understanding of the “Sociological Imagination” across the semester. The video includes a recap of the concept, as previously discussed in class, and practice questions, quite similar to those that appear on course exams. This is a resource for students, not an assignment for a grade – but they will practice exam questions in it, so there is a tangible benefit for those who engage.

Breeann Austin, the Instruction and Assessment Librarian from California State University, Channel Islands created active learning questions relevant to database searching and the research process. Using PlayPosit, these questions were embedded into two video tutorials on how to search library databases. These embedded questions allow students to actively engage with the videos and self-check their understanding of the material. Additionally, a questions template was created so librarians could reuse the questions in future video tutorials and instruction sessions.
